BLOOMSBURG – The Zeigler College of Business (ZCOB) at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania is partnering with Barron’s in Education to offer its students a wealth of experiential learning opportunities through complimentary access to America’s premier financial magazine. The partnership was facilitated due to the generosity of Barbara Hudock ’75, founder and CEO of Hudock Capital Group.
“We are honored and excited to begin this partnership with Barron’s and provide these invaluable real-world learning opportunities to help support what they are learning in the classroom,” said Interim ZCOB Dean Todd Shawver. “We are so grateful to Barbara for helping to launch this partnership. She has always been passionate about providing our students with the tools they need to improve their financial literacy. This thoughtful and generous gift further demonstrates her commitment to their continued success.”
Access to Barron’s exclusive online content will provide students, faculty and staff with in-depth analysis and commentary on the markets, updated every business day online. In addition to the subscription, the partnership will also provide substantial benefits to students pursuing a career in business and strengthen resources available to ZCOB faculty, allowing them to make greater strides in their field. Available benefits include:
- Barron's digital licenses for all ZCOB students and faculty
- Distribution of Barron's "Weekly Review” for ZCOB faculty
- Guest Speakers/Webinars available from Dow Jones
- Exclusive opportunities to connect with Barron’s corporate recruitment teams for intern and job opportunities
The Barron’s in Education program is designed to foster educational and professional growth by connecting practical analysis to textbook theory with a goal of exposing students to a variety of careers in business while providing them with the opportunity to share knowledge from financial professionals from around the world.
“The partnership between Barron’s in Education and Bloomburg is another great opportunity to invest in the professional growth of BU students, and I was happy to lend my support to the effort, says Hudock, who has a history of strategic giving at BU. “This is one of the leading resources available to help students learn about best practices in the finance industry and something that will add so much value to their educations.”
