W. P. Carey Mentorship Programs
Mentorship is a vital part of professional and personal development at ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business. Connecting students with peers, alumni, and executives, W. P. Carey Mentorship Programs deliver valuable benefits to mentors and mentees alike:
- Mentorship more than doubles a student’s odds of having an engaging career when they graduate
- Mentors are promoted six times more often than those not involved in mentoring programs
- Mentees are promoted five times more often than those not in mentoring programs
Ways to engage
Traditional one-on-one mentoring pairs professional mentors with one or more W. P. Carey undergraduate student mentees who want to expand and deepen their interests and career opportunities. Ongoing meetings take place over an academic semester or year.
Flash mentoring joins professional mentors with W. P. Carey graduate student mentees who are interested in exploring specific career opportunities and industries. One-time mentoring conversations can occur whenever and wherever is most convenient for mentors and mentees.
Peer-to-peer mentoring connects first-year W. P. Carey undergraduate students with sophomore, junior, or senior peers to help ensure a successful first year at ASU. Guidance from student mentors is available throughout the academic year, and can be particularly beneficial for business freshmen living off campus, as well as those arriving to Arizona from other countries or states within the U.S.
