In the heart of rewarding excellence, HCBE provides a variety of scholarship opportunities for business students, including the Michael J.

These connections also help students build their professional network that can lead to important internships and potential job opportunities.
Qualifying students can participate in the Razor’s Edge Shark Cage Scholars Program or the Huizenga Business Innovation Academy. Shark Cage is set up similarly to the “Shark Tank” TV show. Through mentorship, training, networking, service projects, leadership-building initiatives, and an award of $22,000, students will create, start, manage, and implement a business plan. The Academy also has an entrepreneurial focus and is an intensive, competitive, accelerated program where students complete their bachelors and masters degrees in only four years, receive an $18,000 scholarship, and $20,000 towards their own start-up business once the program is complete.
The IACBE-accredited Masters in Business Administration, Masters in Accounting, and a Masters in Public Administration are all offered online.
