McCann Hosts Annual MBA Panel for America Needs You
We hosted America Needs You (ANY) at our offices for an MBA panel, an annual event where admissions officers talk to students about the MBA process. ANY is an organization that pairs high-performing, low-income college students with working professionals. The “Fellows” are put through an intensive two-year program with their mentors that involves career development along with continued accountability checks to ensure they’re meeting grade requirements to graduate on time. Last night’s MBA panel included Stanford, Harvard and NYU, among others. Admissions officers discussed everything from applying, interviewing, completing on through graduating.
I was a mentor for two years, paired with an amazing student who returned to college to study sociology. She’s graduating in 2018 and plans to pursue her Master’s degree. Upon graduating my Fellow through her two-year program, I’ve stayed involved with the organization and many of its mentors and staff who have become friends.
ANY is always looking for volunteers so please get involved!
