With the Burger King University launching on July 2, the fast-food chain is finally offering its students the chance to be an Insider.
This isn’t just a way for students to make some extra money or get in some extra credit, it’s a way to earn more in the process.
While it might seem like a great opportunity for those students who are already busy and studying for the Big Five, Burger King offers students a chance to make a meaningful contribution to the world.
“In this way, Burger Kings students will be a catalyst for the global community and the world as a whole,” said David Luebke, vice president for student engagement.
“We believe the more we give back, the better off we will be as a society.”
The first batch of students will receive a $10,000 scholarship to be used toward a meal or two.
For those who can’t afford the $10k, Burger Master students will get a scholarship for $5,000 that includes tuition, room, board and a copy of the Burger Master guide.
The first group of students is set to start enrolling at 7:30 a.m. on July 6.
The program is designed to help students connect with and engage with Burger King’s global community, and for those who are interested in becoming a Burger King insider, the program is free.
“It’s a really great opportunity to be part of something that’s very positive and important for the world,” said Alex Zemmour, who has been a Burger Master student since his junior year in high school.
“This will allow us to learn about the company, and we’ll be able to get to know other students and learn a lot more about them, as well as the company.”
Zemmarour and his fellow Burger Master graduates will receive the first chance to meet the company’s top executives in person.
“I think it’s really important that we learn about what they have to offer in terms of how it’s done, and also what they’re thinking, and how they work,” Zemmetry said.
“And this is one way that we can learn.”
While Burger King has become one of the top global brands in recent years, the company also works to make an impact on other spheres as well.
The company is working with the World Bank and the United Nations to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis in the region, and Burger King recently teamed up with the UN to develop a $2 billion, 3-year plan to end hunger and poverty.
“Burger King is making an impact by investing in a lot of different projects around the world, and it’s making an enormous impact on the lives of so many people around the globe,” said Zemmy.
“But it’s also really important to see if there’s any impact that we’re making in the lives we live and the impact that Burger King can make on the world.”
