To help bridge the knowledge gap for students, Westford University College recently launched its “Westford Mentorship Programme”. The program is a unique fusion of current Westford undergraduate students as mentees and former Westford MBA students as mentors. The program was launched on April 13 in Pullman, Deira. It was attended by 30 mentees and mentors from a variety of industry backgrounds. It was an exclusive event where students were able to connect with their mentors and vice versa. The mentors showed great enthusiasm in engaging with the mentees, and this event alone set a high benchmark for what to expect going forward from the mentor and mentee relationship.
Hanil Das, co-founder and CEO of Westford University College, said: “The Westford Mentorship Program is a reciprocal learning opportunity between our MBA graduates who are currently in leadership positions in industry and our academics who continue their license. This program will allow mentees to be coached by the mentors, who will share their professional experience, knowledge and skills with the mentees to help them achieve their professional ambitions. The event opened the doors to a world of opportunities for mentors and mentees in terms of leadership and learning. The program is designed to have six individual meetings in six months. Through this initiative, Westford aims to create an empowering platform to engage, connect, grow and network.
