Become a mentor
FEB aims at facilitating relationships between Alumni and students that provide students with the unique opportunity of benefiting from experience. The mentor relationships are expected to be mutually beneficial exchanges that will encourage personal and career growth. Becoming a mentor enables alumni to share their expertise with current FEB students, which will be valuable for their own career-related decisions. Mentor matches are not determined or assigned by the university – they are determined through one or more conversations between the individuals involved. It may take multiple conversations before a suitable match is determined.

How can you participate?
The online FEB Alumni platform, which is a community of FEB alumni makes it possible to connect with students that are currently looking for a mentor. In addition to that, on the FEB Alumni Network platform, you have the opportunity to contact former classmates, student talents and receive updates on events and university news.
The alumni portal allows you to register using your LinkedIn or Google account. The portal will ask for access to information from whichever social media account you choose to use (we prefer LinkedIn). This information is used to populate your profile (which can later be modified) and to extend invitations to your connections if you decide to invite people in your network to join. When creating a profile on the system, you will be asked if you are willing to help, and how you are willing to help. Simply select the “Willing to be a give career advice to students” option. Students can also sign up to the portal. Once you are selected as a mentor, you will have the opportunity to give them career advice and enrich their personal development. Opportunities to interact with students include email, calls, a cup of coffee or of course in person. Alumni do not have to be on campus to leave a footprint at FEB. Whether you are right down the street or across the globe, we invite alumni from around the world to become a FEB Mentor.
