The NRF Foundation Student Program in New York City this January offers exclusive mentoring by top executives, access to NRF 2022: Retail’s Big Show and opportunities to learn from industry experts – including iconic designer Steve Madden.

He will share insights from his memoir – "The Cobbler: How I Disrupted an Industry, Fell From Grace, and Came Back Stronger Than Ever” – along with a look at what he predicts for upcoming trends and advice for undergraduates as they prepare to launch their careers.

Madden will be introduced by Macy’s, Inc. Chairman and CEO Jeff Gennette. 

It’s part of a full day of sessions at the NRF Foundation Student Program that will offer college students the chance to explore a variety of careers in retail as they get ready for full-time roles and internships.

The conference runs Jan. 13 – 16 at the Javits Center.

Register by Dec. 22 to accelerate your retail career at the NRF Foundation Student Program and explore scholarships to help you realize your dream to join us in NYC.
