The Goizueta Student-Alumni Mentor Program is designed to help students bridge the gap between the academic and professional world through the practical insights, coaching, and experience of the Goizueta alumni network.

In your mentor, you'll find the voice of experience, a sounding board, and a perspective that helps expand your own.
