What is a mentor?

According to The Random House Dictionary, a mentor is a wise and trusted counselor. The Latin American Business Certificate program has identified a number of professionals who work in the field of international business in Latin America and who have volunteered to serve as mentors to our students. They work in a variety of industries (e.g., finance, marketing, customs brokerage, government) and hold important management and staff positions (e.g., President, CEO, Director, Vice-president of Marketing, Sales Manager, Trade Specialist). The mentor and student will meet face-to-face once or twice a semester to get to know each other and discuss career-related issues. In addition, the mentor and student can communicate via email and telephone calls as often as desired.  

 

Take advantage of a great opportunity to get your career on the fast track.
