The NRF Student Association supports students who desire to enter the field of retailing and retail marketing by providing experiences outside of the classroom and networking opportunities for students to get immersed in the rapidly growing field of retailing. This club gives opportunities to students by having conversations and meetings with business representatives with plentiful job opportunities/internships possibilities. This includes travel to New York City, where students who decide to go attend “The Big Show,” which is the largest retail convention in the world that provides the ability to have direct conversations with top executives. Students will also have the opportunity to attend a pro trip to another predetermined city. Join us to take advantage of these opportunities and get ahead in the business world!
