The goal for the Executive Shadowing program is to provide NAU-FCB students with the opportunity to understand the daily functions of an executive. Internships allow students to transition from the classroom to the business world as valuable team players, while the Executive Shadowing program allows them to understand what their degree can lead to many years from now.

Executive Role

Help the student gain a sense of:

  • Career path
