On Tuesday, February 4, students of the Lagos Business School Full-time MBA 18 class participated in a one-on-one session that allowed them to engage members of the Alumni community.
The objective of the session was to officially kick-off the mentoring programme for the MBA 18 class and to get the mentees to meet, interact with, and learn from their mentors.
The mentoring programme aims to support the career and business development of the MBA students, through guidance by experienced professionals and entrepreneurs from the LBS Alumni pool. It provides an avenue to gain valuable insights from members of the successful Alumni community.
Welcoming the mentors and their mentees to the session, MBA Director, Uchenna Uzo told the students to make the best use of their interactions with the mentors as it offers them short- and long-term benefits. He also thanked the mentors for contributing their individual and collective quota to improving the professional capacity of the students.

With mentors chosen from a wide range of industries, the mentees have the opportunity to widen their areas of interest and build a network of professional acquaintances.
