What is the B.E.S.T. Program?
The B.E.S.T. Program is best described as a community-supported enterprise that puts successful black executives in the same room as HBCU students. The aim is to share the knowledge, experience, and business insights of the executives with the students as a form of an executive training program. Through these sharings and one-on-one mentorship, the executive training program will help HBCU students adapt better when they begin to walk their chosen career path. This executive training program benefits both sides greatly. For the executives, you immediately gain a pool of potential recruits as you mentor students looking to join your field. For the students, you will gain the first-hand experience you need to fully understand the needs and demands of working in the ‘real world’. Below are three main ways you can take part in the executive training program.
Executive Training Program - Core Programs
There are three core programs within our executive training program - Mentoring Program, Classroom Conversations, and Town Hall Talks. Each is made to support students in their academic, personal, and professional growth. In the Mentoring Program, students are exposed to the realities of their preferred fields, such as expectations and demands. Classroom Conversations is a type of executive training program where guest executives act as lecturers for an hour, discussing curriculum-related topics. And in Town Hall Talks, students, professionals, and community leaders are brought together to talk about current events and issues. Concerning support, our executive training program has several support programs.
The B.E.S.T. Program has plenty of support programs within the executive training program. Executives can host various activities, such as career fairs and webinars, as well as released newsletters from their company. Through the support programs, HBCU students can still learn from their mentors even when they are not together. To learn more about the B.E.S.T.
