The International Business Alliance (IBA), which is operated at Georgia State University and is made up of students from area colleges and universities, is looking for Atlanta executives with international business experience to participate in its 1998-99 Mentor Program.

      The nine-month school year mentor program begins in October and pairs each executive with a selected IBA member after an extensive interview effort.  Mentors are asked to meet with their protŽgŽ at least once a month to discuss a variety of topics including career planning and international business practices.

      During the past six years, more than 75 mentors have been involved in the program representing firms such as Turner Broadcasting, BellSouth International, Southern Co., Siemens Energy & Automation, NCR, USA Cargo, Devoto & Co., NationsBank, AIM Partners, Andersen Consulting, Hardeman Customs Brokers and Jordan InterStart.

      To receive a mentor information packet, call Yongmei Du, co-director, or Dan Kinsey, Institute of International Business, at (404) 651-0988.
