Mentoring Circles

Mentoring Circles is an interactive event during which students network and engage with successful mentors who are also alumni of the Faculty of Business Administration.

It’s offered each semester in partnership with the Cenovus Centre of Excellence in Sales and Supply Chain Management.


Our alumni mentors share their professional experiences and philosophies and then engage with students in small-group discussions. Students may ask questions and pose ideas in an informal setting while also hearing insights and expertise from our mentors.
