Successful kickoff for the MSc Mentor Program
More than 150 students, alumni and representatives of Corporate Partners participated at the kickoff for the MSc Mentor program 2015/2016 on October 6.
Now in it’s third year, the success of the Mentor Program cannot be overstated. The contribution from alumni and corporate partners is extremely valuable. We want to express our heartfelt gratitude for the effort everyone makes in order to help our students to a good career start. Also, based on feedback, it’s evident that mentors benefit just as much from the relationship as mentees.
Engagement and high level of activity during the evening
Following a brief introduction by project manager Thérèse Sundbrink, Head of Alumni Jessica O’Mary and Head of Strategic Partnerships Henrik Björck, everyone got the opportunity to meet with their respective mentor/mentee and make new acquaintances.
As an ice breaker and in order to help the new mentor pairings to get off to a good start, a complimentary workshop was held by Stefan Ekwall and Dominic van Martens of Selfleaders, a long time partner and supplier of courses and programs to Career Services and IFL. By the level of activity and engagement in the Aula it was clear that this initiative was very much appreciated by the participants.
We wish mentors and mentees the best of luck and look forward to another inspiring year.
