Mentoring Programme

The word mentor originated from Homer's Odyssey thousands of years ago. Today, the word mentor has evolved to mean a trusted friend, savvy advisor, excellent teacher, and wise person. As an alumnus of CEIBS and part of the CEIBS mentoring programme, we are confident that you will exceed these standards as a mentor to our MBA students.

 

Since its launch in 2004, the CEIBS Mentoring Programme has matched more than 1,800 mentors and mentees, with all participants deriving great benefits from their interactions. This programme offers a unique “win-win” opportunity for both parties. Students receive valuable guidance from mentors through their extensive work experience, while mentors are able to give back to the next generation and to the CEIBS community. The mentor role helps to provide knowledge, encouragement, friendship, support, and guidance to mentees. To highlight the importance of this program and the value provided to students, CEIBS Mentoring Programme has been integrated with the MBA “Leadership Journey” as part of its official required course curriculum. Through this program, students are able to more effectively grow as a leader.

• Ethical and Compassionate CEIBS Alumni or current EMBA student

Prof. Emily David's 10 Tips for Being a Good Mentor

1. Even if it seems awkward to be so direct, use the very first meeting to outline your expectations of each other and how you will work together. Define acceptable conversation topics, behaviors, and, most importantly, what you both hope to get out of the partnership.
2. Give your mentee specific times that he or she can contact you as well as acceptable modes (e.g., email, WeChat, phone calls).
3. Set ground rules for meetings. Good practices are to (a) go in with a predetermined agenda or topic, (b) agree to both give your undivided attention while together, and (c) give them developmental next steps or action plans to work on after the meeting is over. more
