      Westford Mentorship Program

      Westford Mentorship Programme is a reciprocal learning opportunity between our MBA alumni currently in leadership roles in the industry and our day scholars who are pursuing their bachelor’s degree. This programme will allow the mentees to be coached by the mentors, who will share their professional experience, knowledge, and skills with the mentees to help them to achieve their career ambition. It all equates in giving back to the society by having a positive influence in the lives of young people, especially those who are looking for meaningful professions. The Program bridges the gap between academia and the workforce by providing students with an opportunity to engage with experts in their field of interest, ask insightful questions, and enhance their career exploration. Alumni mentoring programs have proven incredibly successful across the globe, however, it will be the first of its kind in the UAE.

      For Mentors

      Mentoring is a learning relationship between individuals focused on the mentee’s development and goals. As someone who has “been there before”, you will be able to assist current students in developing the confidence, knowledge and skills required to make a successful transition into industry. Mentoring is a great way to expand your professional network.

      For Mentees

      Students are encouraged to seek information and guidance from their mentor, and utilize the insight gained from learning about their mentor’s skills, experience, and knowledge to inform decisions about their future. They will also receive career guidance, networking opportunities, potential professional opportunities, and a chance to enhance their communication and career development skills.
