Mentoring

Navigating your way through university and into the working world can be a challenge at times. By getting guidance from someone who’s walked a similar path, you’ll feel better equipped to make your next move.

Business School mentoring program

Mentoring is a collaborative learning relationship where both parties share mutual responsibility and accountability. The goal being to help the mentee work towards the fulfilment of clear and agreed goals. This happens through a series of time-limited, confidential, one-on-one conversations and other learning activities with a mentor.

The Monash Business School mentors come from a variety of private, public sector and not-for-profit organisations and have management and leadership experience. Many mentors are Monash alumni who have had a similar Monash experience as you and all are dedicated industry professionals who have volunteered to support future entrants into their industry.

As a mentee, you will be individually matched with a mentor appropriate to your professional goals and academic pursuits. Over the course of 12 weeks, you will meet with your mentor. This opportunity will enable you to learn strategies for success in a supportive environment.
