Alumni Mentoring Program

It is a great pleasure for The AUBG Alumni Association (AAA) in cooperation with AUBG to announce the first season of the brand new alumni initiative - The Alumni Mentoring Program.

The Alumni Mentoring Program connects juniors and seniors to alumni and provides them with an opportunity to establish a mutually rewarding relationship through one-on-one discussions on personal and professional goals.

The program aims to help students create their own connections outside the classroom. The students will get a chance to improve their knowledge and gain more experience in areas relevant to them. Mentors will have an opportunity to share their experience and offer advice and guidance to students on their future career path and development.
