GWSB 1+1 Mentor Program

The 1+1 Mentor Program is a real world, practitioner-oriented accompaniment to the MBA Programs based on the strategic pairing of MBA students and MBA alumni. The goal of the program is to enhance the educational experience of graduate students through the vast wisdom, talents, and networks of the GW School of Business alumni, friends of alumni, and the business community. Reciprocally, GWSB mentors are offered the opportunity to further develop leadership skills and to make a difference in students' futures.


This initiative began in 2008 as a challenge from the Associate Dean for Graduate Programs, Murat Tarimcilar, to the Board of Advisors Human Capital Committee to create a real world component to accompany the new Global MBA.

In 2010, this program became inclusive for all MBA students. It currently operates as a partnership between the Office of Development and Alumni Relations and the Office of Graduate Programs.
