Goizueta Student-Alumni Mentor Program

One-Year MBA Students

The Goizueta Student-Alumni Mentor Program is a long-standing tradition of the Goizueta Business School having been around for nearly two decades. The goal of the program is to help business students--BBAs, MBAs, MSBAs, Evening and Executive MBAs--bridge the gap between the academic and professional world through the practical insights, coaching, and experience of the worldwide Goizueta alumni network.

The objective is to provide both our student mentees and alumni mentors an opportunity to develop meaningful relationships that promote career progression and advancement. Student mentees and alumni mentors are matched one-to-one based on a unique set of criteria. The academic-year program allows for students to have an alumni resource as they complete their studies at Goizueta Business School.
