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
As part of our support for our students’ career paths, we offer a mentoring program. This professional and career-focused program will give you an opportunity to receive guidance and support to assist with professional skills and career advice. It will also facilitate your personal and professional growth by increasing your access to an experienced mentor.
We collaborate with Organisations That Matter, a management consulting and training firm, to conduct the mentoring program workshops which are designed to train both mentors and mentees to ensure that the mentoring experience is a positive and beneficial one.
As a mentee, you will be individually matched with a mentor appropriate to your professional goals and academic pursuits. Over the course of six months, you will meet with your mentor. This opportunity will enable you to learn strategies for success in a supportive environment.
