The NYU Alumni Executive Mentor Program

I'm really happy to have an adult figure besides my parents to help me through this transition into adulthood.” Saphya, Class of 2017

In a survey on alumni programming, over 35% of NYU Shanghai students surveyed ranked “mentoring from an alumnus/a” as their No. 1 top priority. Based on this feedback, the NYU Global Alumni Programs collaborated with the NYU Shanghai Career Development Center to create this mentorship program which launched in spring 2015. Students participated in an application process and the selected mentees were paired with an executive level alumnus/a working in Asia. Each year the program holds a reception to kick off the program, as well as a final appreciation dinner at the end of the semester. Students and mentors are encouraged to meet several times throughout the year. During these meetings, mentors gave students insight into real world perspectives, and provide advice and guidance for their future career goals.
