Who is OME

The MAP E-Mentoring Initiative is open to rising MIT Juniors and Seniors who want to receive one-on-one career guidance from professionals in their field.  The yearlong program aims to assist students in the transition from academia to the professional environment, and will begin this fall.  Mentors participating are from companies such as Draper, BP, Intel, Cisco, and Raytheon.


NEW APPLICATIONS ONLY. To reapply please use this form.

E-MAP is a professional development program. The mentors are professionals who will help protégés strategize, develop professionally, and network.  Mentors help protégés develop overall professional skills that will help them in any profession.  Although we try to match protégés based on exact professional interests and major, this is not the purpose of the match.
