The mentoring programme takes place over the duration of the one-year MBA period. It is a voluntary programme that matches an Invest Africa member (the mentor, who will be an experienced businessperson), with a Saïd Business School student who is of African-origin.
Mentors and mentees will apply for the programme and go through a selection process, co-ordinated by Invest Africa and Saïd Business school. Mentors and mentees will be matched based on the mentee’s needs, sectors that the mentor works in and that are of interest to the mentee and parts of Africa that are of interest to the mentee.
Digital mentoring training will be offered to the mentor and mentee and support will be offered throughout the year by an Invest Africa mentoring panel. The mentor and mentee will commit to a minimum of 2 hours per month, for each month of their year-long mentoring relationship.
