Alumni Mentoring Program

If you’re a student at the Business School or Faculty of Health Sciences, you’ll have access to alumni mentoring programs. These give you the opportunity to receive mentoring from alumni who have expertise relevant to your studies. You will learn from the experiences of a professional and receive useful advice on career planning and decision-making.

Business Alumni Mentoring Program

The Business Alumni Mentoring Program connects business professionals with current students. The program runs for six months, from May to November.

You will receive one-to-one mentoring from alumni with expertise relevant to your studies and career plans. The program allows you to grow your network, gain personalised advice, and plan your career.

For more information, email the Student Experience Programs Coordinator at  business.mentoring@sydney.edu.au

What’s involved

You need to commit to monthly one-on-one meetings with your mentor during the program period. You’ll also need to:

  • attend a briefing before the launch of the program, to learn how to get the most out of your mentoring experience and set goals for the program
  • attend the launch of the program in May, to meet your mentor and negotiate your mentoring agreement
  • submit learning journals that reflect on your progress in the program
  • attend the graduation event in November.

Eligibility

You are eligible to apply if you are a current Business School student for the duration of the mentoring program.

If you are experiencing difficulties in your studies or have a low WAM, we particularly encourage you to apply.

How to apply

Applications for 2017 are now open.

To apply you need to complete the online application form.

What happens next

We will assess you application, and if you are shortlisted you will be invited to attend an interview. This interview will assess your suitability and goals for the program.

If successful, we’ll set you up with a suitable mentor, based on your career goals, ‘soft skill’ development needs and the mentor’s areas of expertise.
