GAMP is a mentoring and networking program designed for Gonzaga University students, alumni and friends. Students and graduates are matched with mentors who share similar career fields, geographic locations or other interests. The program's primary goal is to establish a relationship between the mentee and mentor that facilitates better career decision-making and the development of a network that can result in increased job opportunities.
The Gonzaga Alumni Mentor Program matches both full-time and part-time students with professionals in their fields of interest. This program is a valuable career enhancement tool for Gonzaga MBA and MAcc students and alumni. GAMP offers graduate business students and alumni the opportunity to develop professional networking contacts, exchange information, and share personal experiences and interests.
GAMP also arranges TREKS every year to Seattle, Portland, New York, and the Bay Area. The treks consist of corporate excursions, which allow students to view organizations from the inside-out, career fairs held exclusively for GU students featuring roughly 30 of the areas top employers and keynote networking socials, providing an opportunity for alumni and local professionals to met current GU students and for all groups to strengthen or develop their personal networks.
