Crowell’s Mentor Program is a fundamental distinctive of the MBA and Master of Management programs. The one-on-one mentorship offered through this program provides students with the opportunity to connect with Christian businesspeople from a wide range of industries. Our mentors are devoted to spending at least 10 hours per term with their students, meaning this program is about more than just requirements — it’s about forging important, valuable relationships.
