Pitt Business Mentoring Match
The Pitt Business Mentoring Match takes advantage of our strong, global alumni network. It gives alumni the opportunity to give back to the school and interact with talented, young professionals. And it helps students connect with experienced leaders who can offer invaluable guidance and coaching support. The mentoring program is a critical part of how Pitt Business takes students from the classroom, to the city, to the world.
The Pitt Business Mentoring Match lets students connect with alumni from a diverse range of industries and specializations. It is powered by a searchable online database that lets students search for alumni types by industry, functional area, geographic location, and other parameters.
To date, hundreds of alumni have signed up for the program. They encompass every business major, include both recent graduates and those at the executive level, and are located all across the country. Business students from every academic major, from freshmen through seniors, are eligible to contact our alumni mentors.
One of the first things to remember when initiating a mentoring relationship is that it is, in fact, a relationship, not a transaction. A mentor is there to help an individual grow and assist with his or her transition from life as a student to life as a young professional.
