The Department of Business and Management at AAU is running a mentoring programme matching newly enrolled master students with business executives from the North Denmark Region, who become their mentors. Mentee spots are offered to the master students enrolled at the following programmes: International Marketing, International Business Economics, Organisation and Strategy, Innovation Management, and Management Accounting.
Currently, the programme has capacity to include 25 students. The programme is offered to both Danish and International students (the focus is, however, primarily on internationals, as they experience more difficulties integrating into the Danish working culture and extending their network). Participation in the programme is application-based. The main selection criteria is students’ motivation to start their career in Denmark after graduation and willingness to get insights into the local business culture.
The overall purpose of this programme is two-fold: we help students fit into the Danish working culture context, to extend their professional network in the region, and to become more employable; at the same time, we strive to provide local businesses with new, well-qualified employees.
AAU International Business Mentor Board’s mission is to facilitate knowledge and experience sharing between successful mentors and business mentees in order to educate, equip, and inspire students, as well as help them achieve their potential, broaden network, clarify career goals, and become more employable in Denmark. The programme has a special focus on cross-cultural transition and integration of international students in Denmark. The programme duration is 8 months (November-June). The working language is English.
