Interested in learning from prominent politicians and experienced alumni working in the financial and legal sectors? The Hong Kong Mentorship Programme is definitely a golden opportunity for you.
The Mentorship Programme is an exciting initiative launched by LSESU HKPASS in 2013 aiming to offer students the opportunities to develop a mentorship relationship with public figures and alumni. We have secured 16 high-profile mentors including President and members of the Legislative Council, as well as established lawyers, entrepreneurs and bankers from across the fields.
With a ratio of below 1:5, the Mentorship Programme seeks to maximise interactions between mentees and mentors. Two meetings will be arranged during Christmas and summer holidays in Hong Kong, where mentees will gain invaluable insights from our prestigious mentors.
