Mentor’s role

The main role of the mentor is to help students excel in sharing their professional and personal experience. Communicating with a student mentor asks provocative questions and helps students gain more knowledge that will be useful in future decision-making.

Successful mentor:

  • Motivates: expresses confidence in the learner’s skills and encourages to try new things
  • Shares: teaches and advises how to establish professional contacts
  • Helps: promotes an open and sincere communication, responds to the student‘s needs
  • Teaches: helps students to grow professionally and reach their goals

Becoming a Mentor is not only communicating face-to-face with students who often provide new insights and perspectives, but also an important contribution to the future success of the graduates and the strengthening of ISM alumni community.
