Cameron Executive Networks enters 13th Year


CENMixer Every semester for the past 13 years, the Cameron School of Business has worked to connect CSB students with an extensive cadre of active and retired business executives, offering their time, experiences, and talents to enhance the education and careers of Cameron students. This semester is no exception. Nearly 120 eligible CSB students joined the program’s co-directors for an information session to learn more about how to get involved in the program. Through the years, the program has grown due to the tremendous professional successes achieved by our students with the guidance of a mentor.

Over the course of the next several weeks, students will apply to the program, applications will be reviewed by mentors, and accepted students will be matched with an executive for the remainder of their time in Cameron as an undergraduate. The matches are made after mentors and mentees connect at a mixer. On Thursday, February 11th, the accepted students and the mentors interested in taking on a new mentee will attend our CEN Exchange Mixer. This event provides an opportunity for the students to network with professionals and to engage with prospective matches. The experiences gained through the participation in the program help tremendously to bridge the gap between academia and the business world.

“Our strong academic programs, the real-world experiences we offer our students, our executive mentoring program and our commitment to meeting the needs of current and future businesses have helped us achieve recognition year after year,” CSB Dean Robert Burrus said.

With more than 200 graduate students, CSB provides several educational paths, including a Professional Master of Business Administration program that offers classes one night a week. The remaining coursework is online, allowing working professionals the flexibility needed to pursue an advanced degree. Among other assets, the editors noted as a key strength knowledgeable faculty who bring a wide range of practical business experience.

After collecting data and a performing a survey of 22,000 students, the editors chose 295 schools to feature. The book's two-page school profiles have sections on academics, student life, admissions information and graduates' employment data. The CSB profile includes statements from students regarding the expertise and diverse specialties of the faculty, as well as programs that provide hands-on experience.
