The yearly cocktail party which gathers the mentors and mentees of the year as well as other master students and local business professionals, was held on Thursday 19th January at the Monte Carlo Bay in Monaco.
88 graduate students, enrolled in the IUM masters programs and in the Monaco MBA, met top executives and entrepreneurs from various fields who wanted to be introduced to the current classes. Some of these entrepreneurs accepted to join the 2012 Mentors’ Club and to share their experience with one assigned student. A unique opportunity for the IUM students to expand their business network and for these business executives to get a broad and accurate view of the IUM student body.
Launched in 2002, the IUM Mentorship Program has become an extremely valuable experience for the students who can benefit from the guidance of CEOs, top executives and successful entrepreneurs. Every year this program involves more than 85 mentors and has shown an outstanding contribution to the students’ goal achievements.
The 2012 IUM Mentors` Club is composed of successful entrepreneurs and “business angels” as well as of top executives of prestigious finance institutions, of large multinational companies and famous luxury brands. 50% of the mentors live in Monaco, the other half comes from New York, Chicago, Tokyo, Singapore, Paris, Milan, Roma and London. Various backgrounds, diverse personalities, multiple nationalities … an interesting panel that looks like … the profile of the IUM students!
