Annual Kick-Off Event
The Hogan Annual Kick-Off Event is an event that celebrates the new academic year and is held at the Pacific Club. Students have the opportunity to meet and network with Hogan Advisory Board members and more than 100 business leaders.
Every Wednesday evening, Hogan students meet for 90-minute off-the-record discussions with entrepreneurs and business leaders. Lectures are held during the fall and spring terms and are dynamic interactions between students and Hawaii’s entrepreneurial leaders. Students learn about different business environments and industries and are truly inspired. For information, please contact us at (808) 440-4280.
Entrepreneurial Study Missions
Every year, Hogan students have the opportunity to travel to China and India on business study missions. These often results in life-changing experiences.
The internships and cultural visits are with entrepreneurs in Beijing, Shanghai, Hongkong and Macau.
The company and cultural visits are with entrepreneurs in Bangalore, Mysore and New Delhi.
China and India Interest Groups
In preparation for their trips, Hogan students attend events and workshops during the 2nd semester, which provide them with business and political insights on China and India.
Recognizing China’s ever-growing global importance and impact, Chaminade University has worked to increase the awareness of the campus community to the Asian giant’s social and economic dynamics. To mark these efforts, Chaminade has established an annual forum to explore a facet of Sino-Capitalism, China’s unique form of capitalism.
Throughout the program, Hogan students participate in sponsored service learning projects.
Homeless Job Preparation Workshop Program
The Hogan Entrepreneurial Program sponsors a job preparation workshop for the homeless once a year in October. There are usually about 25 homeless participants who spend the day with Hogan students who help prepare them for future employment. Time will be spent creating resumes, conducting mock interviews and learning about employment resources available to them. Their resumes are then sent to more than 500 potential employers.
Each year, students serve their community by dedicating 25 hours of their time. Students choose how and where they donate their good will within the state of Hawai’i. Many organizations seek volunteers, such as Red Cross and Humane Society among others. Students are encouraged to identify opportunities early and begin service without delay.
It the student is having trouble locating a community service opportunity, they may visit Chaminade University’s Service Learning as a good resource to begin their search. Service hours cannot be done in conjunction with a class required service learning project.
Students serving community service must submit a Social Community Service Activity Form.
Public Policy Forums
Every few months, we try to bring Hawaii’s opinion leaders together in small closed-door discussions of important issues. In this way, we hope to help build a better understanding on matters that significantly impact the economic and social climate of where we live and where we conduct our business.
Hogan Internship Program
Internship opportunities are available to further develop students’ real-life experience as well as knowledge and skills.
Interns will participate in relevant work experiences in a position approved by the Director. The interns will update the director regarding the work performed, how it applies to the objectives set forth and its relevance to classroom experiences, twice during the internship. At the conclusion of the internship, the interns will submit a 2 page written report or deliver a 5-7 minute oral presentation, which will provide to the Director a review of their overall intern experience, including assessment of the organization.
