Become a mentor for a student

Alumni, are you ready for open dialogue, to share your experiences, knowledge and skills and develop your sparring skills? Do you want to meet the newest Aalto generation and join our interdisciplinary mentor network? Do you want to discover new cultural perspectives?

In the Aalto University Mentoring Programme, students are provided with the opportunity to meet with people who are already part of working life and develop their own abilities and expertise. The programme provides its participants with mutual benefits and collaborative opportunities.

Every year, the programme brings together three hundred Finnish and foreign students and alumni, both in Finland and abroad. The programme is a meeting ground for different fields, disciplines, nations and generations. Every year, there are tens of School of Business alumni as mentors for students in the programme.

Mentoring helps you to find your path
