As a successful member of the MIT
Sloan alumni community, you have the power to inspire, motivate, and support
MIT Sloan students. Your knowledge, experience, and insight will help students
maximize their MIT Sloan experience and open their eyes to the opportunities
and challenges they will face after graduation. Whether you were supported by
alumni during your own time at MIT Sloan or you simply want to give back to the
institution that has helped shape your career, mentoring is an easy way to make
a real, lasting impact on the MIT Sloan community.
Students and alumni participating
in the MIT Sloan Alumni-Student Mentoring Program upload LinkedIn data and
provide information about their areas of study, career interests and career
paths, and other interests to create detailed user profiles. Students learn
about and request mentors based on alumni 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.
As a graduate, you understand
better than anyone that innovation and cutting-edge thinking define every part
of the MIT Sloan experience. When you serve as a mentor, you’ll have regular,
direct contact with a student who is immersed in that innovation every day.
While students benefit from your experience and insight, they’ll expose you to
the new ideas that are shaping MIT Sloan today.
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.
