About the Program

With the goal of promoting the professional and personal development of our members, MMBA launched a mentorship program in Spring 2010. There were 18 mentee/mentor pairs. Students had interests ranging from banking to biology and mentors were current or past students of Harvard Business School, MIT, Sloan, Columbia, and many other top universities around the country. Because of the success of the program, the organization has decided to implement mentorship as a core mission and hopes to see the program grow in number and span.

Mission

To positively impact the lives of MIT undergraduates by providing graduate student mentors that can be a professional resources and personal support as they seek and obtain meaningful summer opportunities.

Philosophy

We believe a mentee that maintains a consistent and significant relationship with their mentor will learn how to network better, have the appropriate tools to secure a summer opportunity, and ultimately become an action-drive leader with more awareness of their role in their community.
