Various faculties or schools offer access to alumni mentoring programs. These give you the opportunity to receive mentoring from alumni who have expertise relevant to your studies. You will learn from the experiences of a professional and receive useful advice on career planning and decision-making.
The Business Alumni Mentoring Program is a leadership program that connects business professionals with current students, in a mentoring relationship that focusses on career and professional development. The program runs for six months, from April to October each year.
You will receive one-to-one mentoring from alumni with expertise relevant to your studies and career plans. The program allows you to grow your network, gain personalised advice, and plan your career.
To learn more, you can attend the information session or email the Student Experience Programs Coordinator.
If you are unable to attend the sessions, watch a recorded info session.

A full list of program activities and commitments will be provided to successful applicants at the student briefing session.
You are eligible to apply if you are a current Business School student and you will remain enrolled for the duration of the program.
There are no WAM requirements, and we particularly encourage you to apply if you have experienced difficulties in your studies or have a low WAM.
Applications for 2020 are now closed.
We will assess your application, and if you are shortlisted you will be invited to attend an assessment centre in Week 6. This will assess your suitability and goals for the program.
Successful candidates will then attend a briefing in the mid-semester break or Week 8 (students will have a choice of several sessions).
If successful, we’ll set you up with a suitable mentor based on your career goals, employability skills development needs and the mentor’s areas of expertise.
