(Media-Newswire.com) - The Center for Retailing Studies at Mays Business School is hosting H-E-B day, Wednesday ( Oct.14 ). A dozen high-ranking H-E-B executives, including presidents, vice presidents and directors, will address more than 2,300 students in more than 20 classes during the one-day period.
The center is partnering with the 104 year old San Antonio based retailer for this interdisciplinary educational event that to give undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to gain valuable business insights from leading industry professionals.
“The H-E-B executives enhance the classroom curriculum by discussing day-to-day solutions for today’s business challenges,” said Cheryl Holland Bridges, director of the center. “Speakers have coordinated with their hosting professors to customize content for each class based on what students have been studying this semester.”
By addressing classes across different majors including finance, marketing, agri-business, management, communications, and others the event communicates to students that a $13 Billion grocery company encompasses all business fields. This is the third year the center will host an H-E-B event.
Last year, the grocery chain extended more employment offers to Aggies than all of its other target college campuses combined. This year’s recruitment goals exceed 50 new hires, making Texas A&M and Mays Business School the top university partner for H-E-B. Recruiting Team Leader Andrea Hardeman says, “Texas A&M is a natural fit for H-E-B. We share the same values of history, tradition, loyalty & service. Aggies who begin their careers with H-E-B have done incredibly well, and are emerging as leaders in our organization.”
“When so many senior officers from a major corporation make a commitment to come to campus from all over Texas, it really says something,” said Bridges. “H-E-B is making a huge investment in Aggie education.”
The Center for Retailing Studies promotes and supports retailing through student and executive education programs, research and service.
