Connections events give you the opportunity to speak with a wide range of mentors and explore career paths, ask questions and gain valuable insights into their focus areas. This event is the perfect opportunity for you to network with alumni from your program who are established professionals and seasoned experts in their fields.
Past events have welcomed presidents, CEOs, directors and entrepreneurs. Each brought a breadth of experience and knowledge from the field as well as a desire to really connect with you and offer support.
How does speed mentoring work?

The fact that the rounds were designed in such a way that I actually met alumni from my program in finance was amazing. Each mentor I met had a very different career path after graduation, and I was so inspired by their stories and how they built their careers up.
