Students

CUHK Mentorship Programme (CUMP)

A valuable opportunity to learn from a seasoned professional / senior executive at personal level that you can't afford to miss!

  

Purpose

To enhance the exposure of CUHK students through experience sharing and interaction with experienced professionals and senior executives.

 

Benefits to Mentees

Through the interaction with the mentors, the mentees will be able to:

  • broaden their social and personal perspectives;
  • obtain advice on career planning and development and
  • build up networks for future development.

 

Benefits to Mentors

Through the mentorship, mentors would inspire students with real world experience at personal level, thereby grooming future leaders for the society, setting a role model for the young generation and shouldering personal social responsibility by contributing to the Hong Kong community.

In addition, it is considered that the mutual exchanges between mentors and mentees provide a platform for the mentors to better understand the younger generation and their life and other values so as to have a better view on ways to attract the right talents and stay young at heart!

  • From diverse fields including banking / finance, consulting, education, engineering, health care, hospitality, HR, IT, legal, marketing, NGO, public sector, etc.
