Corporate Mentor Program
Juniors and seniors who are the first in their families to attend college often need help transitioning into a rewarding career. For more than 25 years, the USF Muma College of Business Corporate Mentor program has helped students explore career opportunities and develop strategies for their professional, academic, and social success.
Mentors provide access to opportunities where students learn about interviewing, corporate
culture, networking, and how to
become leaders in the corporate world. Active participants find that the workshops, seminars, dinners, and other opportunities help them develop professionally, as well as build the underlying skills that allow them to become tomorrow's leaders.
The program builds bridges for success for underrepresented students. Traditionally,
first-generation students incur the largest student loan debt of any population, with
four out of five students working more than 25 hours weekly to pay for their educational
expenses. To answer this great financial need, the Corporate Mentor Program awards
over $80,000 in scholarship to participating
students each year.
There are many elements to the Corporate Mentor Program, such as graduation rates, students volunteering, and participation in student organizations. Learn more about these initiatives
