Inspire excellence. Stay connected. Build community.

  • Be a mentor on your terms

    Participants provide information about their areas of study, career interests and career paths, and other interests to create detailed profiles. Students learn about and request mentors based on these profiles, and alumni choose to mentor the students they feel they can best support. Because you as an alumni mentor opt into the program and work directly with mentees to set parameters around how often you will communicate, you build relationships in the way that works best for you. 

  • Stay connected to innovation that defines MIT Sloan

    When you serve as a mentor, you’ll have regular, direct contact with a student who is immersed in the creative, innovative community of MIT Sloan. While students benefit from your experience and insight, they’ll in turn, share with you the new ideas that are shaping the future of business.

  • Build tomorrow’s community of successful professionals

    When you serve as a mentor, you form meaningful, rewarding relationships that prepare students to be better employees and leaders, inspire them to stay connected with MIT Sloan, and motivate them to support the next generation of students. Mentors help perpetuate, grow, and strengthen MIT Sloan’s global alumni network.
