3 What Is the Kellogg Alumni Mentorship Program? Unique opportunity to develop a one-to-one relationship with a Kellogg Alum An outlet for advice on career planning An opportunity to learn from someone with valuable experience in your field of interest A resource to assist you in maximizing your Kellogg experience

4 Who are the Kellogg Mentors? Kellogg mentors are alumni in a wide variety of industries, functional roles, and parts of the world. Each of these alums has committed to building a relationship with a Kellogg student. The length of the relationship will be determined by you and your mentor. Alums are prepared to talk about any aspect of your academic or professional life that you would find valuable—they are not prepared to give you a job.

5 What Is the Level of Commitment? Mentors and students are expected to be in contact at least once a quarter You and your mentor may decide to interact more frequently—it is up to you and your mentor! During your initial conversation, you and your mentor should decide how to proceed and how often to interact

6 Mentor Matching Methodology  Students can search the list of available alumni mentors and select their top eight preferences  Each student will be assigned a random number and that will be the order in which their mentor is assigned  When the time comes for them to be matched, if their first choice is already taken, the matching mechanism will assign them their second choice, if that is also taken, the mechanism will move on to their third and so forth  In the rare situation where a student is not matched with a mentor, KAMP will work with you to find an available mentor once matching has been completed  Students will have a 24 hour window of opportunity to opt-out of the program if they are not satisfied with their assigned mentor

7 Just Three Simple Steps to Get a Mentor… 1)Attend Kickoff Meeting 2)Go to the Alumni Mentorship Matching System website at and rank your top 8 mentor choices
