MBA Mentoring Program

The MBA mentoring program at Assumption provides our Accelerated MBA students with the opportunity to build lasting relationships with experienced business executives.

Mentoring at Assumption

  • Through a partnership with community-minded business professionals interested in developing the next generation of leaders, Assumption is able to extend the learning of accelerated MBA students beyond the classroom.
  • MBA students accelerate their development and grow in their chosen field with the guidance and encouragement they receive from their mentors.   
  • Mentors have the opportunity to share their experience and contribute to the development of a future leader.
  • Mutual participation in the program helps to create a tradition of mentoring that strengthens and deepens leadership talent in the local business community.

Mentor Process

  • Accelerated MBA students are introduced to their mentor through a virtual introduction at the start of the fall semester. Students also have the opportunity to meet their mentors at the Mentoring Reception held in mid-September.
  • Students and mentors work together to arrange a meeting approach and schedule that fits both of their needs and schedules. 
  • Meetings can be held on or off campus in person, via phone, or video conference throughout the academic year as frequently as once a month or just once in a while.
  • It is the responsibility of the student to drive the frequency, scheduling, and agenda of meetings and conversations.
