Student and Industry Mentorship Program
The School of Business offers a student-to-industry mentorship program, which places selected students into mentoring relationships with industry professionals to enhance personal and professional development.
How it works
Participating students are selected through a competitive internal application process and matched to a mentor based on areas of mutual interest and goal orientation. Training will be provided to mentors and mentees in early January 2020 and our student-mentor pairs will meet face-to-face for the first time at a kick-off event.
All participants are asked to commit to one meeting per month from January to August.
