Business Mentorships

1-on-1 learning and original research projects customized around students' interests

See all topics

Students can explore their interests in business by developing foundational skills in economics, or by looking at specific business-related questions within the context of sports, social-based startups, or larger organizations. Business mentorships allow students to explore how researching information and then developing ideas based on that information can add value to a product or service, thus generating profit and benefits to society.

Some students use their mentorship as an opportunity to build out specific business plans for an idea or product they already have. All students engaging in a business mentorship learn to market themselves and their ideas and gain skills to prepare them for the future.
