scholars mentoring

Mentoring is at the heart of LIFE's scholarship programme; it is part of what makes a LIFE scholarship special. It engages members from all tiers to mentor our undergraduate and postgraduate scholars globally throughout their studies. Mentoring gives students access to one-to-one advice, counselling and guidance when making academic and professional choices.

LIFE pairs mentors and mentees by looking for the best match between:

  • Scholar's area of interest and profile
  • Mentor's experience, profile and skills

Scholar Mentoring is continuous throughout the years of study.

*Whenever possible, we try our best to also match the geographical locations of the mentor and the mentee.

Junior Mentoring

The Junior Mentoring programme is based on the same principles as that of the scholars. Junior members can also benefit from informal discussions with senior members in the LIFE network - more details are provided in the Career Transition section.

Junior Mentoring is offered for up to 12 months

Executive Mentoring

The Executive Mentoring programme offers senior members the opportunity to discuss with fellow senior members different areas of concern or interest including professional development, ways to improve a particular business skill, moving to a different area of finance, and/or to a different geographical area.

Executive Mentoring is offered for up to 12 months
