Executive Mentoring Program
The Executive Mentoring Program provides a powerful way for students to gain professional insight, receive support and expand their network. The program pairs MBA students with business executives from various industries in a one-to-one relationship for an eight-month period.
The program is intended to bring experienced mentors and Merage School students together so that the students can learn the informal, subtle knowledge that cannot be offered in general classroom instruction. It is not an aid or adjunct to the student’s job search. Over the past 16 years, we have matched more than 1,300 students to business executives.
