The Business School Mentor Programme

Students attending the mentorship programme
The mentor programme is a priority programme at the Business School which will contribute to connecting students with leaders from Norwegian businesses and industries.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The aim of the mentor programme is to form a personal dialogue where the mentor and student meet each other to discuss career and personal development. This is meant to provide insight into business management and the relationship between theory and practice. This is a unique opportunity, both for students and mentors.

The programme is also meant to reduce any gap in expectations between students and the business community, connected to competence, roles, demands, and career opportunities, among other things.​

At the same time, the programme provides good opportunities for creating relationships between students at the Business School and the national business community, as well as closer cooperation between the university and the business community. The duration of the mentor programme is from autumn to spring.

Based on an application process, chosen stu​​​dents will be connected to mentors, which forms the basis for personal dialogue and follow-ups via individual meetings.

Then, it is up to the student and the mentor if the relationship between them is to be concluded or maintained.

The mentor programme will consist of leaders in some of Norway's biggest companies, both locally and nationally.
