Send Students to New York!

Each year, select Retail Entrepreneurship students are given the opportunity to attend the NRF Foundation's annual Student Program in New York City.

2019 saw two days packed with educational sessions, networking opportunities, a career fair, store tours, and many more events.

Students specializing in every aspect of retail (including merchandising, supply chain, information technology, and fashion design) came together to learn about how retail is a great place to start and develop a rewarding career.




The NRF Foundation’s annual Student Program is the only one of its kind designed specifically for College students. This event provides opportunities for them to:

  • Hear from CEOs and senior executives
  • Be mentored by industry leaders
  • Gain access to the latest in retail technology
  • Network with recruiters representing global brands from across the country

The funds raised during the FSU Great Give 2019 will help the Jim Moran School send more students to the 2020 NRF Student Program!
