For the tenth consecutive year, the Stillman School of Business is providing the enriching Stillman School Corporate Mentorship Program.

The business school has partnered with executives from corporate employers from all around the surrounding area to provide Stillman students the opportunity to learn about their industries.

The students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the executive’s place of employment and learn the healthy habits of successful managers through observation and, likely, a reflective paper regarding their experience.

Students who have completed the Stillman Corporate Mentorship Program have reported back positively about their experience with it.

They found significant value in the guidance given to them by their mentor.

Students were able to develop their professional competencies as well as advance their understanding of the industry in which they will be immersed.

This initiative is an exciting opportunity for students in the Stillman School to network with employers who genuinely want to educate, encourage, and possibly employ students who embody Stillman’s core values of integrity and professionalism.

Over the course of both the fall and spring semesters, students are expected to meet with their mentors two to three times a week.

Although there are no official projects, it is likely that students will write a reflective paper about their experience.

In order to participate, students are required to be fully enrolled in the Stillman School of Business and be in good standing within it, as well as Seton Hall University.

Although this year’s program is currently underway, rising junior and senior students can prepare to apply for this engaging opportunity sometime early next academic year.

If you are interested in being considered for next year’s program, Professor Michael Reuter is the faculty coordinator; he can be contacted at: michael.reuter@shu.edu.
