BER students study journalism in the beating heart of the media industry, New York City, and quickly develop a network of industry peers and mentors. They graduate with an extensive portfolio of work created through full-time internships and rigorous coursework, and virtually all of them land jobs in top financial publications within a few months of graduation.
We believe that our students will benefit greatly from relationships with outstanding journalists as they seek to create their own paths in the world of business journalism. We view this mentorship program as a valuable tool to help BER students connect with accomplished professionals for advice on their journalism education and their careers.
Each of our mentors is a distinguished graduate of the BER program.
