Undergrads invited to apply for Corporate Mentor Program

Would you like to meet with a business professional in your dream job? How about pick their brain and learn the secrets to their success? Here's your chance! The Wayne State University Mike Ilitch School of Business Corporate Mentor Program is now accepting applications for the 2018-19 program, which runs from late August through April.

Selected undergraduate students will be custom matched with a professional mentor in their desired career path or industry. You'll get to build a relationship with your mentor by meeting every month during the academic year, visiting your mentor at their office, getting one-on-one help and support with important career decisions, and most importantly, getting a taste of a "day in the life" of your future career. To be considered for the fall program, please complete and submit a student application

PLEASE NOTE: simply filling out the application does not commit you to participating in the program. After you submit your application, if you are eligible, one of our program directors will contact you to schedule an interview.
