Mentorship program helps BSE alumni and current students to develop their careers

Barcelona School of Economics Mentorship Program

BSE alumni share their knowledge and experience with each other to enhance their careers

The Barcelona School of Economics Career Services department has recently launched an initiative that connects alumni as well as current students through a new Mentorship Program. 

Alumni are able to sign-up as a mentor, mentee, or both as part of the new program. Mentors provide information about their current position, employer, specific expertise, industries they have worked in, years of experience and a brief description about how they could support a mentee.

Alumni are able to select a mentor through a directory that has been put together by the Career Services department, which displays information about each mentor. This gives mentees the opportunity to select a mentor that fits their career goals and ambitions. 

Each mentorship program is designed to last for up to six months and includes a minimum of three meetings between mentor and mentee. The initiative has already brought over 90 alumni and current students together and continues to grow in popularity.
