The Power of Two. Mentors provide students with insight into the business world and how it works. We know that our Full-Time MBA students learn a great deal from their professors and from each other, but during their time here they have the opportunity to learn from the “real world” as well. A mentor can serve as a guide, a counselor, and a role model as the student begins to explore the business world outside of the university.

A mentor and a student commit to a year-long agreement. The goal of this relationship is for the mentor to facilitate the professional growth of the student by sharing the insights gained through years of business experience. It is the student’s responsibility to seize the opportunity and to facilitate the growth of this relationship.

Each mentor-student relationship will be unique. The two of you should work together to determine how much time to invest in the relationship, what activities to pursue, and what you want to accomplish together. This relationship promises to be rewarding for both mentor and student.

The Full-Time MBA placement rate is 90 percent within three months of graduation with starting salaries ranging from $80,000 to $90,000. The percent acceptance by professional function and industry, as reported in MBA CSEA for class of 2012. Some students choose not to report employment information.
