Corporate Mentor Program
In addition to learning theories and best practices through the classroom experience, it is important that MBA students receive practical guidance and expertise, as they navigate through industries, career choices, and business culture in general.
We recognize that some of the best teachers to help provide guidance and expertise are corporate mentors; community business leaders who are willing to guide and advise students. Our program offers MBA students the opportunity to interact and learn from corporate mentors.
Benefits of the Program
The goal of this program is to foster a successful mentoring relationship between MBA students and corporate executives, giving students the opportunity to:
- Cultivate a solid relationship with their mentor
- Develop a diverse and lasting business network
- Engage with dynamic business leaders
- Gain knowledge and insight in their area of interest
- Understand the relevance of their academic studies
- Learn what attributes and experiences companies are truly looking for in candidates
Our mentors are business professionals from local start-ups, mid-sized companies and Fortune 500 companies. They are leaders in their industries and are a wealth of knowledge. Our mentors are truly dedicated to helping our students grow by giving them an enriched MBA program experience.
To me, it’s a no-brainer to sign up for a mentor. Fisher has so many amazing alumni and local businesspeople to tap for mentorship. There’s absolutely no reason not to do it! … I found that having a goal for the relationship (for me, it was mostly about the internship search) really helped. I’m glad to have participated and made a new connection in my network for the future.
