At Scholars of Finance, we believe that mentorship relationships deliver outsized returns for both parties invested in them.
To confirm our assumptions, we conducted primary and secondary research to see if it would be a fit for our members. We interviewed dozens of students and executives and also sent out surveys to ~50 students and ~30 executives to better understand if a mentorship program would make sense, and if so, learn how to structure it.
Executives and students expressed a strong interest in mentorship. We used our findings to develop a pilot program. Staying true to program design principles, we have iterated on the program, and V3 of our Mentorship Network is currently live.
