Alumni Mentorship Program

The Alumni Mentorship Program for Architecture, Urban Design and Real Estate Development matches current students with alumni according to mutual interests and backgrounds.  The program offers the opportunity for one-on-one guidance throughout the fall and spring semesters, as well as broader networking during the program’s social mentorship events. The program is designed to:
  •     • Provide students with insight into the realities of the job market and provide them with opportunites in various sectors of the architecture, urban design and real estate fields 
  •     • Help students acclimate as future professionals by clarifying career goals, identifying resources and contacts, and planning job search strategies
  •     • Keep alumni connected with each other and future alumni, as well as informed about the current program

If you would like to participate as an alumni mentor for the Architecutre and Urban Design Programs,
please contact Francesca Fanelli, Career Services Officer: careers@arch.columbia.edu. 
If you would like to participate as an alumni mentor for the Real Estate Development Program, please contact realestate@arch.columbia.edu to learn how to get involved.

Internship Program

Recruiting interns is an excellent way to immediately add value to business operations, engage in mentoring with current students, and develop a pipeline of potential job candidates.
    • Fall internships run from September-December (recruitment from July to early-September)
    • Spring internships run from January-May (recruitment from November to mid-January)
Internships count towards 1.5 credits of electives (per semester) if they are paid opportunities and meet the 80-hour minimum requirement. Typically, students can commit between 8-20 hours per week.

If you would like to offer an internship to current Architecture and Urban Design students, please contact Francesca Fanelli, Careers@arch.columbia.edu, for more information.
