The program gives students a chance to interact with business professionals in their working environment giving students insight into their chosen field and the opportunity to learn more about a career path or industry they may not have previously considered. Shadowing experience can be as short as one hour or up to one business day in length. Host companies set the date and length of the shadowing experience.

Professional Mentorship Program (PMP)

Sponsored by the SLC, the Professional Mentorship Program connects juniors and seniors to successful College of Business alumni and friends currently in or retired from the student’s intended field. Students and mentors interact under this structured program for one semester, during which they communicate at least 30 minutes by phone or email once a week for a ten week period. Mentors provide encouragement and insight on career development, personal growth and challenges in the workplace. Applicants are interviewed prior to the pairing process in order to match them with the most compatible mentor. Please note there are a limited number of mentors, so not all applicants can be matched with a mentor.

Mentors represent such companies as Disney, Deloitte, Morgan Stanley, Grant Thornton, IBM, KPMG, Accenture, Otis Elevator, EY, SunTrust, CSX, Pfizer, PWC and Del Monte Foods.

Apply for the program by completing a survey and submitting your resume through SeminoleLink at career.fsu.edu and log into your SeminoleLink account. Go to the DOCUMENTS tab and upload your resume. Then go to the SURVEY tab and complete the application. Due to the volume of applications, you will only be notified if you are invited to an interview.

Sponsored by the SLC, this dynamic program links incoming business-intent freshmen with seniors knowledgeable about the College of Business. Throughout the semester, mentors and mentees communicate at least once a week for an hour by phone, email or in person. Seniors offer valuable guidance to freshmen in an effort to help the incoming student navigate through the College of Business and make the most out of his or her college career. Mentors represent all business areas within the college and are selected based on their qualifications. This program is offered every semester and is highly recommended.

MBA Shadow Program

Pursing a master’s degree in business gives students a competitive edge in the job market, and by participating in the MBA Shadow Program, students get a first-hand look to learn what the MBA Program has to offer. Undergraduate students are matched with a current MBA student and get the opportunity to sit in on an actual MBA class giving them a unique inside look at the curriculum and teaching style of master’s level courses. MBA students also act as mentors answering questions about the program, admissions, assistantships, taking the GMAT and more.
