Hess ENGAGE Co-Curricular Program

What is Hess ENGAGE?

Hess ENGAGE is a co-curricular engagement program launched by Monmouth University’s Leon Hess Business School, which encourages students to build a competitive edge. This program tracks and rewards students for their engagement in activities on and off campus.
This program presents a variation of activities for students to take part in to earn competency badges correlated to different levels of engagement. Guest speakers, information sessions, webinars, internship experience, resume-building, and interview exercises are some of the ways students can engage and emerge into prosperous business professionals. All achievements can be used to build a student’s professional profile as well as be shared on different social media outlets.
As engagement increases, it enables students to create productive habits and enhances their overall college experience. Besides the knowledge learned from business courses, Hess ENGAGE is another way for students to gain new insights and knowledge of the business world they will enter.
