Career Mentorship Program
Activities | Career Mentorship Program
The Career Mentorship Program aims at providing valuable opportunities for our undergraduate business students to seek advice on career direction and life goals from Mentors who are experienced professionals and senior executives from across different industries. In addition to ongoing self-organized interaction opportunities, structured program-level gatherings will be organized to facilitate the two-way participation between Mentors and Mentees throughout the mentorship period.
