With the assistance of the MBA Alumni Board, we have established a mentor program that pairs each student with an Ole Miss alumnus or professional, often a graduate of our MBA Program. The program is designed to match each MBA student with a professional who is working in the student's desired field of study.
The goal is for students to not only be able to go to their mentor with questions regarding the MBA Program, but also to learn more about their desired field of study from the mentor and to get a jump start on establishing contacts in the business world.
The Ole Miss MBA Mentor Program is designed to bring business leaders together with Ole Miss MBA students for the purpose of professional growth. The mentors will share their knowledge of the business world and provide insight on navigating through the post-MBA world of work. This opportunity will allow MBA candidates to build career networks and grow as professionals and leaders.
Throughout our program, students will obtain knowledge from within the walls of the classroom, but we want them to expand learning beyond the classroom with opportunities that allow students to build relationships. Mentors offer constructive feedback and opportunities for job shadowing and professional role modeling.
At the end of each month, the Mentors will fill out a Mentor Monthly Check-In Form, and the MBAs will fill out a Student Monthly Check-In Form Forms will be emailed to the participants by the Professional Development Chair.
