What is mentoring?

  • Mentoring offers students a unique opportunity to peek into the real environment of Czech and international companies.
  • Mentoring is a collaboration arrangement, in which the student (Mentee) visits her/his mentor in the company and accompanies her/him in her/his everyday work and is actively involved in real projects.
  • Mentoring enables flexible cooperation based on an agreement between the student and the mentor. The time range and the specific content of the cooperation is not pre-specified or limited.
  • Mentoring is not a paid internship, but is a priceless opportunity that is a source of personal contacts, experience and excellent references for your CV. At the same time, the mentor gets a whole new perspective on her/his work.
  • Mentoring allows you to select from a wide database of mentors from medium-sized and large companies to multinational corporations in a whole range of industries. Every CTU student can find a perfect fit.
  • Mentoring gives CTU students a unique opportunity. No such offer is available for students of any other university in the country!

When I was applying I was most worried about the timing and my daily schedule. Since everything was discussed in advanced and agreed on both sides this fear was unfounded. The program let me see the work flow in an international organization and the processes applied for carrying out projects.
