Business Mentor Program
About the Program
The FAU Business Mentoring Program is designed to bring together students and business professionals that share common professional interests. This mentoring relationship will enable business students to be better equipped as they explore varied career paths and assist them as they navigate those early years of professional life. The mentor will benefit from encouraging and challenging their mentee to think about their future and prepare for professional life. The Business Mentor Program is formally begins in the Fall and continues through the Spring semester.
The upcoming session will be September 2021 - April 2022 and will be a hybrid incorporating virtual and inperson components.
If you are an experienced professional that wants to help FAU Business students develop their goals and professional skills, then apply to be an FAU Business Mentor below. As a mentor, you will have the opportunity to share your wisdom and experiences, evolve your own thinking, develop a new relationship, and inspire future generations. Once you apply, the College of Business Professional Development team will contact you for an interview and background check. We match student mentees and business mentors based on career aspirations, areas of expertise, and interests. Mentors are expected to meet individually with student mentees at least one hour per month and attend the four group events. Click below to contact Michael Thomas and mentor a business student.
The BMP runs annually (starting in the fall) for FAU Business juniors, seniors, and graduate students that would like to connect and learn from business professionals. Students must apply, excel academically (3.0+) and be dedicated to their professional development. There is an expectation to engage with your mentor on a regular basis to ensure the mentorship grows and benefits both the student and the professional.
