Division of Management & International Business Mentoring Program, Price College of Business, University of Oklahoma, Norman
Mentees: College sophomores through seniors
Ronald Anderson coordinates the Management & International Business Division Board of Advisor’s mentoring program and has since its inception. Anderson is responsible for recruiting mentees and mentors, chairing the matching committee, managing the logistics of the program and all events, and has done so for the nine years of the program’s existence.
“Professor Anderson is the driving force behind our program,” shared Mark Sharfman, director of Division of Management and International Business. “Over 100 students have benefitted from our mentoring program thanks to his dedication. Professor Anderson has expanded the program to include students who excel as well as those that need extra academic support. His successful outreach to all students has made this program special.”
Anderson really enjoys the program’s “check-in” meetings that include company visits. In addition to bringing the community of mentors and mentees together these meetings take place at area companies, allowing students to take tours and interact both with their mentors and with company executives.
“In addition to his overall mentoring program efforts, Professor Anderson has also been a personal mentor to veterans who have returned to school and has been instrumental in these veterans staying in school,” said Sharfman. “Without his dedication we would not have this highly successful and well- regarded program for our students.”
About the Program: The Division of Management & International Business Mentoring Program is designed to help students make the transition from school to work. Students are paired with local executives to help them develop as professionals and prepare themselves to add value in the work place from day one. Mentees are sophomores, juniors and seniors who have been admitted to Price College and have declared one of the Division of Management & International Business majors.
