M.B.A. Student Completes Gubernatorial Fellows Program

Hugh Brown, a student in the H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship’s M.B.A. in Finance program at NSU’s Tampa Student Educational Center, recently completed Florida’s Gubernatorial Fellows Program. Brown was one of 14 college students from the state who was selected to the fifth class of Gubernatorial Fellows, and he was the first NSU student ever to be chosen for this competitive program. 

Students accepted into the program spent nine months working in the Executive Office of the Governor, or in government agencies in Tallahassee, gaining firsthand experience in state government. Brown started his fellowship last August, working in the Office of Drug Control. He worked specifically on the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program that Governor Charlie Crist signed into law last year.

During his fellowship, Brown remained in the M.B.A. program by taking distance learning courses from Tallahassee. After completing the fellowship, Brown will turn his focus full time to the M.B.A. program and plans to graduate by spring 2011. He looks forward to a career that will put his finance and government experience to use.

“I think the fellowship will open doors in my career down the road,” said Brown.
