Alliance University 360 degree vertual tour
Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.

- John C. Crosby

From weakness to strength, from grass to grace, and from nothing to something. Mentoring is not just about putting information in; it is about drawing out from the learner - the knowledge, skills, and understanding that is lying dormant within them. It has the power to open doors, inspire, support, and encourage people to realize their potential and achieve their dreams.

The 2014 Gallup-Purdue Index report defined two crucial categories of experiences to which all students should aspire. First, finding the right mentors who care about students as persons, makes them excited about learning and encourages them to pursue their goals and dreams. Second, the report also stated the importance of jobs or internships that allow students to apply classroom learning; projects that take a semester or more to complete (such as a thesis or capstone project); and engagement in extracurricular activities and organizations.

It is in this pursuit to drive quality student engagement and learning that Alliance University has conceptualized The Corporate Mentorship Program.

The mentorship program is a year-long initiative where thirty corporate mentors from top organizations and thirty faculty mentors from Alliance School of Business come together for one common goal – student success. The program aims to have our students mentored by some of the top professionals across industry verticals. This program will be a catalyst in driving student holistic growth and making them industry-ready ahead of time.

The mentorship program provides an opportunity to imbibe leadership qualities, business acumen, corporate know-how, develop interpersonal skills, and challenge students to be better every day.

The corporate and faculty mentors would be interacting with the students regularly on campus to ensure a successful outcome from the program.
