Alumni Mentor Program
The McDonough School of Business Alumni Mentor Program (AMP) links current undergraduates with the best and brightest Georgetown alumni in both the Washington, D.C. and New York City metropolitan areas. Each fall, students are matched with mentors to begin the program. Mentors and protégés meet throughout the semester to discuss topics such as interviewing skills, resume design, networking/dining etiquette, internship/employment search, and any other career-related topic that comes to mind.
To inquire about or apply to the program, please contact Talia Schatz, director, McDonough Undergraduate Office of Professional Development.
MBA Mentorship Program
We are looking for 200 alumni to volunteer as mentors for our incoming Full-time MBA Class of 2022. Mentors will be significantly experienced alumni who are highly engaged with Georgetown and, ideally, acquainted with MBA recruiting to assist in career discussions.
This program will run from September 2020 through the end of the academic year in May 2021. Mentees will be selected by Georgetown McDonough staff and faculty.
Please reach out to Maureen Carpenter, assistant dean, MBA Career Center, if you have any questions about the program.
