Business Mentoring

The Wilbur O. and Ann Powers College of Business believes in the power of mentoring, and the effect mentors can have on a mentee's academic and professional success. In 2008, Tiger Ties Mentoring was launched to provide students with an opportunity to explore their personal and professional goals while guided by Clemson graduates and friends of Clemson in the business field

In the Fall of 2021, the Office of Career and Global Engagement launched The Business Network, an all-in-one platform for alumni, friends of Clemson and students to connect for success in business.
