We need your help!
The most frequent request we receive from prospective MBA students is the opportunity to interact with current students, and your assistance enables us to give them a perspective only an NC State MBA student can provide.
The time commitment involved is minimal (typically 10 hours/semester), and your participation will make a tremendous impact on the future of the NC State MBA program.
As an Ambassador you will be listed on the Student Ambassador website and respond to prospective student questions via email. You may also be asked to make some of the following contributions:
- Hosting a prospective student in one of your classes. This involves meeting the prospective student a few minutes prior to class to introduce him or her to your classmates.
- Taking a prospective student on a campus tour.
- Participating in webinars and/or MBA events for prospective students.
Please fill out the Jenkins MBA Ambassador Application so it may be reviewed by the MBA Office. If you are selected, you will be notified by email and a short profile will be created on the Student Ambassador website. If you have any questions please contact Riley Hutchinson, Assistant Director of Admissions.
Thanks so much for your participation!
