The goal of the new multi-dimensional mentoring (MDM) model from the University Center of Exemplary Mentoring (UCEM) program is to ensure that each Sloan scholar has a support system throughout their PhD program, and beyond, by enlisting mentors with different levels of seniority, backgrounds, and professional experiences. By doing so, the MDM will help to mitigate a sense of academic.
