2017 Employment Profile


Executive Mentor Network

The Executive Mentor Network (EMN) has been designed to engage graduate students with business professionals -- who are either Junior, Mid-Level, or Senior Executives -- who work in the private, public, or non-profit sectors. The Mentor & Mentee partnership will enable first-year and second-year graduate business students to obtain coaching and guidance from their designated Mentor, as they explore career opportunities during their academic studies at AGSM. Due to the limited number of Mentors available in the EMN, not all students will be matched to a Mentor.

Eligibility: The Executive Mentor Network will be open to all AGSM students who are in the MBA, Professional MBA, MPAc, and MFin programs who are in good standing. The Mentor & Mentee partnership will involve various opportunities for engagement with each other from November to June.

Please apply today to become a Mentee. Deadline to apply each year is November 1st.
