Helpful Executives-In-Reach Program

The Helpful Executives-In-Reach (HEIR) program at Rutgers Business School connects MBA students with senior executives within the professional field they are preparing for. HEIRs are subject matter experts in a particular area or specialization, who are appointed on a rotating basis to provide industry insights and professional advice to MBA students (Full or Part-Time) interested in gaining expertise in that same area.

The HEIR program begins with a guest lecture or panel discussion when an HEIR is appointed. Following this, selected MBA students will participate in group mentoring sessions led by HEIRs.

The HEIR program is a mentoring initiative. HEIRs should, therefore, be contacted for professional planning advice or industry insights only, and not contacted for internship or career placement opportunities.

Area: Strategy and Leadership

After delivering a guest lecture in a class focused on this subject, HEIRs will lead group mentoring discussions with selected part-time and full-time MBA students interested in this subject area.

Helpful Executives-In-Reach Supply Chain (HEIR-SC) focuses on supply chain topics and offers participants the opportunity to access experts, grow their network, and share their interests and experiences.

The mission of the HEIR-SC program is to create a space to facilitate curiosity driven discussion around supply chain topics and grow relationships between current and future supply chain leaders. The program meets once a month, alternating between panel discussions and mentoring circles. MBA students may participate in this program by application and selection only.
