About The Riordan Programs
Founded in 1987, The Riordan Programs is a pioneering career-based outreach program that motivates high school students, college students and recent college graduates from diverse backgrounds and under-served communities to consider and prepare for careers in management through education, mentorship and professional development. The Riordan Programs has since been recognized as the defining model for such programs.

The Riordan Programs sets the standards high by encouraging individuals (high school age through post-baccalaureate) with little guidance and mentorship to consider careers in business and to seek graduate-level education opportunities. We exercise preparation as one the fundamental attributes to the success of an individual, and therefore, succeed in preparing our participants to be admissible to top universities and graduate programs and for leadership positions in the business community and society. Our training program anticipates the many challenges of the workforce and provides a fulfilling balance of curriculum and hands on experience that will enhance their career goals in management.
