Helping students successfully transition to the workplace

Mentors, many of whom are Miami Herbert Business School alumni, provide support and advice to University of Miami business students, helping them successfully navigate the transition from the classroom to the workplace. We select students who, we feel, will gain the most from the program and represent the School in a way that we can be proud. 

Over the years, the Mentor Program has produced long-lasting personal friendships, professional relationships, and even business partnerships. We invite you to keep that tradition alive with your own experience.

By participating in the mentor program, you have the chance to:

  • Enhance a student’s collegiate experience by helping to prepare students for careers through coaching from your own experiences and leading by example.
  • Help students develop a professional network and other important relationships with individuals in the business community.
  • Motivate students by providing another voice (in addition to parents, counselors, and professors) that speaks of the importance of a strong work ethic, a professional attitude, effective time management, and other successful work habits.
  • Provide another perspective for students who need to ask questions and share experiences.
  • Impart valuable information about your industry and career of choice.
  • Participate in workshops, events, and roundtable discussions.
  • Help prepare students for job interviews with advice, tips, and techniques.
  • Strengthen your ties to the Miami Herbert Business School, its alumni, and the business community.
  • Use this program as a recruitment tool and a means of involving current and recent graduates.
  • Give back to future generations of students to help them achieve their career goals, as you have.
