In an effort to continually enhance the value of the SDM program to both students and potential employers, the SDM '06 cohort launched the SDM Alumni-Student Mentor Program. The purpose of the program is to connect MIT alumni with students to help them explore the wide range of career possibilities and how they can apply their education to best benefit their employers.
The SDM Alumni-Student Mentor Program makes the most of the alumni/student connection. MIT alumni will mentor students on their careers, their studies, and on work-family issues that face mid-career students at this stage of their professional development.
MIT mentors value the impact they have on a student's career and the rewarding connections they have forged with the SDM community. Companies that employ SDM graduates will ultimately benefit by adding MIT talent that is not only schooled in state-of-the-art engineering and management education, but also part of an international MIT alumni network that they can access as a resource to address industry and marketplace challenges.
