Mendoza Ambassador Program


The students highlighted below are available to meet with you while you are visiting the Notre Dame campus to answer any questions you may have about the Mendoza College of Business. It is as simple as reading their bios, selecting a student whose interests or path matches yours and contacting them via their email address to schedule a time and place to meet.

Our Ambassadors are involved in many activities and enrolled in full class loads, so if you set up a meeting and for some reason are unable to attend, please be considerate and give advanced notice to cancel.
