About the Finance & Banking Advisory Board Group Mentoring Program
The mission of the Walker College of Business is to deliver transformational educational experiences that prepare and inspire students to be ethical, innovative and engaged business leaders who positively impact our community both locally and globally. In support of this mission, the Finance, Banking and Insurance Advisory Board has partnered with Business Career Services and the Finance Student Association to create a Group Mentoring Program; a structured way for students considering professions in the area of finance to interact with industry professionals who have achieved success within the field.

The mentoring program has allowed me to expand my peer network and be surrounded by other hardworking students. The program has given me access to a wide variety of finance professionals from different backgrounds. Being able to meet with mentors and ask questions, in and out of the program time, about career plans and uncertainties has been an amazing and useful resource.
The group mentoring program provides much more than just valuable connections with strong leaders. The mentors prioritize motivating and supporting their mentees in both personal and professional development. The mentor / mentee relationship is mutually beneficial. As a mentee you feel valuable to your mentor and that in itself is so motivating. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this impactful program, and hope to be able to return one day as a mentor.
Being a part of the Group Mentoring Program has given me the opportunity to learn from great people I otherwise would have never met. Getting to better know my classmates, and increasing my knowledge of how to advocate for myself while searching for jobs are great skills that I otherwise would not have developed. If you want to learn how to be a better advocate for yourself in the job market and meet people who you can learn from, the Group Mentoring Program is a great program to be a part of.
