Professional Mentoring Program

Take advantage of a remarkable portfolio of mentorship opportunities with business professionals, alumni, and community leaders.

One of the many reasons students choose to pursue their degree at Portland State is our deep ties to Portland’s innovative, globally connected business community. The Professional Mentor program at the School of Business is designed to leverage these relationships for an exchange of expertise, insight, and skill development.

"One of the main reasons why I applied to PSU was the mentor program, but to be honest I had no idea how much it would positively influence my experience. Although I still have a year to go, I am positive that the mentor program will be one of the highlights of my MBA."
