Mentor Celebration Attendees

The Mentor Program at a Glance

Each year, Puget Sound business executives volunteer their time to mentor Albers students. From October to June, mentor groups (a mentor and a small group of students) meet to discuss business issues, career paths, personal concerns and professional experiences. Samples of mentor group activities include presenting true-to-life case studies, inviting students to strategy meetings, providing an overview of a company, arranging meetings with company executives, etc. The time committed is flexible, but the groups generally meet every 4 to 6 weeks throughout the year with each group setting its own agenda and goals. 

Mentor Characteristics

Seattle University looks for mentors who are established executives with a pattern of success in their careers. Since many of our graduate students have substantial business backgrounds, they are in search of individuals who are high level executives such as CEOs, Presidents, Vice Presidents, upper level managers, or business owners. It is vitally important that mentors be committed to education and willing to share their expertise and experience. 

Alumni often serve as mentors as it’s a great way to stay connected to your alma mater.

“As a mentor in the SU program for over 15 years I found the program to be extremely rewarding and a win-win for both the students and me…The mentor-mentee relationship allows the student to be open about their aspirations in a safe conversation with an objective leader who can challenge their thinking and encourage their choices. It has been a great opportunity for me to stay connected with SU and keep in tune with the next generation of business leaders.”
