Alumni mentoring program

Share your experience with future leaders
The Business Alumni Mentoring Program connects Business School alumni with students through a series of monthly one-on-one meetings.

There is a wealth of knowledge and experience within our Business School alumni community. The Business Alumni Mentoring Program provides a chance for our alumni to share this expertise and contribute to the development of aspiring business leaders. We match professional business mentors with current students to inspire, teach and provide career guidance.

"The Business School mentoring program allowed me to connect with recent graduates and current students to help them develop their talents and ambitions. It is a deeply rewarding experience for students and mentors alike."

What's involved?

Successful mentor applicants will be matched with a current University of Business School student, taking into account areas of study, interests, experience and goals.

The program runs for 6 months, from April to October. Applicants must be able to commit to a monthly meeting with their mentee at a venue to be decided between them.

To get the most out of the experience, we ask mentors to:

  • attend a mentor training session prior to the launch of the program
  • attend the launch of the program in April
  • attend the graduation event in October

Mentors and students are matched based on a range of factors:

  • student career goals
  • student needs in terms of "soft skills" development
  • mentor areas of expertise

"The mentoring program reflects an innovative business school that has the best interests of its students front of mind. It is a great way for students to learn more about their chosen industry and to get general guidance on the options ahead. It is also an opportunity for alumni to give something back."
