Welcome to Mentor Connect
Mentor Connect is a peer-to-peer speed mentoring program - an opportunity for UNSW Business School students to have one-off career conversations with an AGSM MBA student on any career related topic you might like to discuss.
Our AGSM MBA students are industry professionals from a range of different industries and sectors. This online program allows you to connect with our MBA students who can help you learn and develop while you are still studying at UNSW.
Successful mentoring relationships are built on openness, respect, commitment and are mutually beneficial - your mentor can learn from you as well.

What is speed mentoring?
Speed mentoring is a bit different to other formal mentoring programs - it's a bit more relaxed and you meet with your mentor for a one-off conversation. It's a fantastic tool to develop your professional skills, find out about different career options or what it is like to work in a particular area or industry. There is no limit to the number of times you can connect with different mentors! It's really as easy as meeting for a coffee on campus.
