AGSM Executive Mentor Network

The Executive Mentor Network (EMN) is designed to engage graduate students with junior, mid-level or senior executives that work in the private, public or non-profit sectors. Students are matched with mentors who have parallel professional interests and share similar career aspirations in regard to occupation, job function and industry.  

The EMN provides an opportunity for mentors to share knowledge, insights and professional experiences with graduate students. Mentees will gain ideas and information that are applicable to their academic studies, internships, short-range job targets and long-term career goals.

Industry Partner Scholarships

The School of Business offers selective scholarships to high-performing and outstanding candidates. These scholarships promote the school’s values of diversity, inclusion and innovation, which contribute to an excellent business program and high quality learning experiences.

We collaborate with industry partners to offer scholarships for specific degree programs and specific attributes. Through the partnership, the scholarship will be in the name of the company or organization. UCR School of Business will match the amount of tuition scholarship committed by the partner. Further areas of collaboration can be discussed, such as internships, training or coaching, master classes and other opportunities.
