MBAchic Mentorship Program

MBAchic Mentorship Program

The team here at MBAchic is thrilled to be offering our very own Mentorship Program!

Currently in its first year, our flagship program connects mentees seeking advice on navigating business school applications, the business school experience and their career development with mentors in our community who have been in their shoes.

Why a mentorship program?

Women in business school have not yet achieved parity, save a few programs — only a handful have reached 45% women this year. Even more staggering, only 8.2% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women. We aim to change that. This program provides a safe space for mentees and mentors to connect and support one another and provides a unique opportunity to broaden your network with other driven professionals around the world.

The nine-month MBAchic mentorship program combines monthly one-on-one mentoring sessions
with workshops and programming coordinated and produced by the MBAchic team.

In addition to lifetime membership in a private group and forum with the entire Cohort, participants gain exclusive access to workshops and guest speakers on topics such as:

  • applying to business school
  • funding business school and life beyond
  • interviewing
  • salary negotiation
  • career development and coaching
  • advocating for yourself in your job search
  • branding and online persona development
  • and more — including networking and recruiting opportunities, teambuilding, events and more as they launch throughout the program

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Mentees submit a brief background, their resume and goals through a simple application form. Based on the mentor population joining us and their profiles (experiences and expertise), we pair mentees when we identify a match that can help you navigate the terrain ahead.

Mentors commit to monthly Zoom calls (1-hour long) with their mentee, for the duration of the nine-month program.

On top of monthly 1:1’s, workshops are baked into the calendar focusing on any number of topics from the bulleted list above.

Finally, a mid-way check-in in December and program “graduation” in May will happen either virtually, or in the MBAchic hometown of New York City.

There is a one-time investment that unlocks the full nine-month program. A portion of that will go to your mentor and to the workshops and additional perks / gifts (this year includes merchandise from the MBAchic Shop and books).
