Mentor With the Tepper School
As Tepper School Alumni, you can contribute to the success of current students through mentorship. Here are just a few ways that you can engage.
The Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship
Mentoring is a critical success factor in helping first-time entrepreneurs achieve success. Having a successful entrepreneur as a mentor helps the first-time entrepreneur focus on the highest priorities and avoid common mistakes. The industry connection that the mentor brings to the table can be transformational.
Pay it forward by serving as a Startup Mentor or Entrepreneurship Capstone Mentor for the Donald H. Jones Center for Entrepreneurial Studies or Carnegie Mellon’s Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship. Email Dave Mawhinney with your questions.
Business Leadership Endeavor
Business Leadership Endeavor (BLE) is our new three-year course sequence designed to equip Undergraduate Business Administration students with core leadership competencies, encompassing both professional development and social responsibility skills. Students engage in organizational development and enterprise building as they progress through the Tepper School undergraduate business program. Through the sequence, students advance from intern to analyst to manager.
As an alum, you can also play a part in mentoring today’s undergrads to become tomorrow’s leaders. Interested in volunteering to be a mentor? Contact Jennifer Wegner, executive director of the Undergraduate Business Administration Program, or John Lankford, faculty lead and course architect for Business Leadership Endeavor.
