Business and Community
The Business School holds a firm belief that having the opportunity engage with current business leaders and industry experts on a one-on-one basis is critical to your education. This program is an outstanding opportunity for participants to partner with and gain from the experience of leading South Australian business executives who make themselves available as mentors.
In this self-directed mentoring program, industry and government leaders have agreed to volunteer their time to mentor MBA students. In the first instance, the Director of Employability and Career Services will ensure that mentors and mentees are paired together based on certain criteria such as experience, skill sets, goals, and a variety of other factors.

Adelaide MBA students receive information about mentoring opportunities throughout the year.
Many businesses have a 'wish list' of projects they would love to delve into if they had that extra day in the week, current expertise or a budget to hire more staff. Adelaide MBA students are in a prime position to provide a mutually beneficial solution while gaining an opportunity to apply their new-found business expertise to practical, real-world problems.
Armed with cutting-edge business knowledge, and nearing the completion of their MBA, a student or team of students is able to tackle a real challenge for government, business or not-for-profit. The team gather information, analyse the data, develop and evaluate solutions, then formulate conclusions and recommendations for the organisation.
