Executive Mentor Program

Started in 2011, the Executive Mentor Program brings students, young alumni, and alumni/friends of the College of Business together in a formal, professional mentoring relationship. Mentors and mentees are matched for a six-month period during which they are encouraged to meet monthly (in-person or remotely).

Mentors support their mentees in

  • setting and achieving goals,
  • honing professional skills,
  • exploring career opportunities, and
  • building a professional network.

WildcatLink is the web-based mentoring and networking platform that houses the Executive Mentor Program as well as other K-State mentoring programs. WildcatLink provides a virtual space for students, faculty and staff, and alumni and friends of K-State to connect with each other based on mutual career-related interests and help topics. Users chooses their level of engagement and availability for networking and/or mentoring.
