Executive Shadow Program

The Executive Shadow Program places students at companies as familiar as Starbucks and as far away as Chicago—all of whom employ Vandals—for 2-3 days over Spring Break. Meet with the experts to learn more about your field.

During your placement you may take company tours, meet with professionals in several departments to learn about their jobs, or shadow a mentor during meetings or work assignments. The exact structure of your visit is tailored to the company and your professional interests.

Why apply?

  • Learn what day-to-day work in your field looks like.
  • Network with professionals and get expert career advice.
  • Gain confidence for interviews and your first job.
  • Meet passionate, engaged professionals and explore the culture of a great company.
  • Learn more about career opportunities in your field and clarify your professional goals.

Program Details

  • Open to all CBE students.
  • Applications will open in November.
  • We will place successful applicants in companies that meet their interests. Past sites include Micron, URM Stores, Fishers Technology, Starbucks and Kepler Group.
  • Trips will be 2-3 days over spring break. All expenses are paid.
