Learn from Senior Seasoned Industry Practitioners

Building a career requires more than just building knowledge and skills. It’s the reason our Elite Mentorship Programme exists, to provide students with personal development goals and career advice in addition to industry insights. Mentoring is central to our approach, offering informal guidance on important career transitions by sharing knowledge and experiences. Our Elite Mentors are senior CUHK MBA or EMBA alumni who are currently top management of reputable business corporations and government institutions. The MBA Elite Mentorship builds friendship, character and leadership skills and expands upon students’ networks. For students, having this Elite Mentorship is a step up in their careers. One-on-One Sessions offer professional advice on career planning, personal growth, leadership development, networking, and lifelong education. Meanwhile, events such as pre-briefing sessions, cocktail receptions and welcome dinners provide essential close contact to developing lifelong partnerships.
