MBA Mentoring Scheme

To help you reflect on your learning, you will have the opportunity to be partnered with an Aston MBA graduate mentor.

Your mentor will have an essential role during your time at Aston, acting as a sounding board and feeding into your studies. They will provide you with senior career advice and share their experiences to help prepare you for a career at the top.

You’ll be matched with a mentor based on your skill-set, previous work experience and future ambitions. We often place MBAs with mentors working in sectors different from their specialisation to date, broadening your experience and providing a fresh perspective. Our alumni mentors work for companies including Deutsche Bank, IBM, Mondelez and Jaguar Land Rover so they can share their experiences of working at international organisations. Your mentor can also open doors to new opportunities after your MBA.

You can meet with your mentor as often as you like and throughout the year you will both be invited to MBA mentoring dinners. Recently our MBA Dinners have been held at Aston Villa Football Club, and have included a tour of the stadium as well as guest speakers. These events are a great way to get to know your mentor and build your business network.
