B. U. M. P. – Business Undergraduate Mentoring Program

Provided by the Ulmer Career Center, B.U.M.P. is an application based one year program which gives students an opportunity to broaden their learning experience through several meetings with professionals in the business community.

Why should I be a mentor?

Becoming a mentor is both professionally and personally fulfilling. Not only do you have the opportunity to serve your field and community, you have the ability to teach the next generation of leaders. Your mentee is a unique source for fresh perspectives and new ideas. Support the change you want to see.

Time commitment:

Mentors and mentees will commit to monthly meetings from September through April. The agenda for these meetings will be determined by each mentor and mentee, and might include attending company meetings, discussing mentee career goals, discussion of a case study or attending other relevant meetings or events.
