Mentorship Programmes

You can help to build the next generation of business leaders and pioneers by registering to become a mentor. There are two mentorship programmes you can get involved in:

Connect with a global network of alumni, give back and expand with our new online Alumni platform, usbalumni.com. Register as a mentor to graduating students while leveraging your professional network. Register today: usbalumni.com

Finding a mentor is a personal journey and you may not find the right match the first time. Fortunately, USB has a broad database of alumni mentors with varying levels and types of experience. This way, students can connect with various available mentors in order to find the perfect match. Our matching process involves a review of certain criteria to find a suitable match based on different requirements from the mentee and listed criteria of the mentor.

Students can submit a request for a Career or Industry mentor via the Career Leadership portal.
