The Class of 2023 Academic Year-Long Mentoring Program is open to all first and second year graduate students.
EOC’s Academic Year-Long Mentoring Program is a professional partnership** between Baruch students and their EOC Mentors. The Program is a commitment: the Mentor and Mentee must meet virtually at least once a month and maintain regular contact via email or telephone. EOC Mentors are experienced executives (some are Baruch alumni) who volunteer their time to advise and help Mentees define and achieve their career goals by supporting, counseling, and serving as role models for Mentees. Mentees in the EOC’s mentoring programs are current Baruch students who have a serious desire to develop themselves professionally and personally; who are aware that in today’s job market, interpersonal skills are essential because very often they make or break a career regardless of one’s technical skills and academic education.
**It is not the goal of the Program, nor is it expected of Mentors to provide their Mentees with an internship or a job, and Mentees in the Program may not ask their Mentors for an internship or a job.
Before you apply, be sure to familiarize yourself with the requirements and expectations by reviewing our Program FAQs.
Please click HERE to complete the Academic Year-Long Mentoring Program application by September 15. 2021. Due to the competitive nature of the Program, applicants are encouraged to apply early.
If you have questions about the program or Executives on Campus, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
