Students interested in the Carlson Undergraduate Mentorship Program, please click here.
The Carlson School Undergraduate Mentorship Program provides valuable career exploration and professional development opportunities by matching students with successful professionals from the Minneapolis/St. Paul business community, as well as professionals outside of Minnesota. The program is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors interested in developing professional, interpersonal, and networking skills critical to their success. Volunteer mentors provide guidance and sound business advice and share their personal experiences to help students prepare for the future.
Students look to mentors for encouragement, support, and the benefit of their experience. Mentors can help students obtain their goals by responding to questions, providing network connections, and giving feedback on job search skills. Mentors also serve as a resource and take an active role in shaping a future alumnus of the Carlson School of Management.
Students expect to work with a mentor who can commit to regular contact with them (at least one interaction per month) from late October through mid-April. There is no expectation that internships or employment opportunities will result from the relationship. Mentors can expect to work with an above average Carlson School undergraduate student who has a strong desire to learn.
We make every attempt at matching the student's major and interests with the mentor's area of expertise whenever possible. We would like the mentor to have at least two years of expertise in at least one functional area of business from the categories listed below:
The Undergraduate Business Career Center at Carlson manages the mentorship program. For more information, please contact the mentorship program coordinator:
