Industry Mentors

Advice. Critique. Feedback.
They've been there before
and they're here to help.

Second year students are matched with industry mentors who work in the fields which the students are studying.
They make themselves available to answer questions, review work, offer valuable feedback, give advice, and even host
student visits at their agency/company. Many of them are Adcenter/Brandcenter alumni or just friends of the school.

We thank all of our industry mentors for all their support of our students.
