The Executive Mentor Program matches Daniels graduate students with senior-level business executives from the Denver metro area. This program offers an unusual and exciting opportunity for students to enhance their professional and personal skills by interacting with our high caliber mentors who volunteer their time. It is intended to educate students on how business is practiced, sharpen career readiness, and build and strengthen professional networks.

Students who wish to participate must commit to the student expectations and outlined timeframe. Students have the opportunity to review the biographies of all participating mentors, and submit their top choices to be matched with their preferred Executive Mentor. Students will be placed in teams up to four students to work with throughout the academic year.

Students interested in learning more about the program may contact Angie Jimenez.

The LEAD (Learning by Example, Attaining Distinction) Mentorship Program pairs undergraduate business students with professionals in a similar field and/or career trajectory. Each mentor/protégé pair is encouraged to meet once per month throughout the school year, and attend a speed-networking kickoff event and year-end celebration. Protégés gain guidance and support from someone in their industry of choice, build connections with professionals in the community, and clarify their own goals and potential future career path. Mentors provide professional advice to a student interested in their industry, attract talent to their company to build their brand on campus, and foster connections with future professionals of their community.

Contacts for the LEAD Mentorship Program:

Hospitality majors: Jill Hartman and Dee Jay Driver
Accountancy majors: Jodye Whitesell
All other majors: Toni (Gabrielli) Phelan and Angie Jimenez
