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.
