​​​​​​​Alumni Mentoring Program​​​​​​

​The BYU Economics Alumni Mentoring Program is a semester-long extracurricular program in which students are matched one-to-one, based on shared interests, with a BYU econ alum. Over the course of the semester, students are given the opportunity to learn about an industry that interests them from an experienced professional while ​​​developing a relationship with a BYU Economics alumnus. 

​Why should you participate?
