Terry J. Lundgren Center Student Experience

Our partners' internships and the Lundgren Center's leadership programs prepare today’s UA students to aspire to become tomorrow’s retailing VIPs.

National Scholarships

"After attending the YMA FSF Gala, meeting Macy's Peter Sachse, and attending the National Retail Federation Big Show, I could not be more excited for my future in such an expansive industry. I was truly inspired to recognize how retail has fostered a widespread support network of individuals from different companies and I took away an important lesson in the power of collectiveness for a common cause. As a finalist for the NRF Next Generation Scholarship, I met four other passionate retail students... we shared insightful conversations about the future of the retail industry and from these conversations I learned the value in motivational friendships and collaboration.  These experience put into perspective how intertwined our paths are with other like-minded innovators who share the same love for the art and science of retail.

Entrepreneurship

“I really value my Enactus experience working with TMM Family Services to increase profits in their ReStore Outlet, which sells building materials, furniture and appliances to the public at a discount to raise funds to support programs for women and children in transition. Working with TMM has given me a passion to work with non-profits in the future. I have seen how my retail degree can be used to help others and I will always be thankful for this!” - Esther Bee, RCSC May 2015
