Madden’s Mentor Program unites junior and senior business students with accomplished business professionals to bring real-world experience to the planning and decisions students will make as they consider what’s next after Le Moyne.
Each year, over 100 senior level executives share their time, experience and talents with Madden students. The list of Mentors is impressive and includes CEOs, Presidents, CFOs, Senior VPs, and Business Owners from almost every sector of business and from many of America’s most well-known companies. Students are paired with a Mentor based on their major and career interest so that they will have a real guide into the area of business they are considering. A Mentor will begin working with a student in their junior year and continue with them into their senior year. Some relations have been so successful that they have continued well past graduation.
Mentors serve as role models, sounding boards, advisers and teachers as students choose a major and begin the career thought process. As the career search begins, Mentors act as advocates, helping with internships, references, resumes and in locating and preparing for interviews. And all the while a Mentor will be a life coach; challenging, inspiring and opening the thoughts and eyes of students to be all that they can be at Le Moyne and beyond.
We are very grateful to our Mentors because we have a program that works! A program that succeeds in no small way and, in some cases, changes lives.
