UNSW Business School Career Mentoring Program

The Business School Career Mentoring Program connects you with a UNSW Business School graduate (our Alumni) who is an experienced business professional and provides an opportunity for you to gain wisdom and advice to support your career development.

This program is a mentoring partnership focused on developing your career skills and identifying career options and goals.


Participants are expected to meet with their mentor for a minimum of six, one-hour meetings over the duration of the program and put effort into maintaining a relationship with their mentor.  Students must attend all compulsory events and submit a reflection journal at the conclusion of the program.
