ESSB MentorMe

The bridge between student life and working life

Would you like to give back to students currently enjoying their studies at ESSB? Then mentoring is a wonderful opportunity for you.

After successfully launching MentorMe with other EUR faculties, ESSB follows in their footsteps, starting the MentorMe program.

ESSB MentorMe is a platform that connects current ESSB students with ESSB alumni through mentoring. It is designed to develop voluntary, one-on-one relationships with ESSB alumni to share knowledge and insights gained through the years. ​

​ As a Mentor, you give your Mentee (student) valuable career advice or just a sounding board for everyday things they encounter as a student. There is also the possibility for you as a mentor to receive support, guidance or learning from the experience of another mentor (Peer to peer mentoring). This is gives you the opportunity to expand your network and meet likeminded professionals.

The MentorMe platform is free of charge, with no costs for, students or alumni.

When will we start MentorMe  

The ESSB MentorMe programme will start on 25 January 2024. All second, third-year bachelors students and all master students can sign up to participate. The programme goes live on 24 January 2024 . We recommend a mentorship for at least three months, followed by an evaluation. During these three months, we recommend that the Mentor and Mentee should have two to three conversations.
