Career Mentor Programme

The Career Mentor Programme provides the opportunity for FEB alumni to invest in the business talents of tomorrow. A mentor acts as a guide, a source of information, and a sounding board for their protégé, offering guidance and encouragement in their chosen field of expertise. Students will typically seek help in looking at long-term career goals, advice on study options and view the mentor as a case study of someone else’s career to date.

There is no formal training required to develop the mentoring function. It does come in handy if you, as a mentor, have a couple of years’ experience in the labour market. Needless to say, this can range from 2 to more than 20 years.

The Career Mentor Programme offers you some advantages as well:

  • Coaching students is an inspiring process. It benefits your own development and is an interesting professional extracurricular activity.
  • Current young students provide you with new and innovative perspectives on your line of work or expertise.
  • Keeping in touch with the university through this programme, gives you access to knowledge, innovative research and an extensive international network.
  • You’re in contact with talented students and graduates that could become future employees or colleagues within your organization.

Through the platform Career ConNEXT you can make a personal profile. This profile includes information about your background, expertise and experience and what your expectations as a mentor are. As soon as you have sent in the registration form, the FEB alumni officer will activate your profile and students will be able to find you in the mentor database and contact you. You can accept or deny requests via email. If you accept the request to be someone’s mentor, you decide together with your mentee how you define and maintain the mentorship.
