Mentoring Programme BFH Business School

Gain valuable experience, make important contacts and benefit from the experience of renowned experts: The mentoring programme of the BFH Business School offers a lot to help students to support them personally and to help them in their career planning.

In a mentoring programme, students are in exchange with an experienced professional. The personal needs, interests and goals of the students are the focus of attention. These are formulated at the beginning and are processed and evaluated in the course of the mentoring programme. Mentors are to serve as catalysts who help the students to develop their potential. Possible topics include:

  • career planning
  • personal and professional development
  • networking
  • wage or other negotiations
  • business plans and self-employment
  • reconciling work and family life
  • exchange on specialist topics
  • assistance in decision making
  • insights into the everyday work of the mentor

Duration of the Mentoring Programme

The mentoring programme lasts for about one year and starts in Autumn. Ideally, students continue to be mentored for a few months after the start of their careers and can thus exchange views on current topics. The mentoring sessions range from four to six meetings. At the beginning and the end of the mentoring programme there is a network meeting where all participants can get to know each other and exchange information.
