Mentoring Programme In order to establish a successful mentoring relationship between the mentor and mentee, several fundamental principles and codes of conduct must be observed by all participants. To fulfil our university’s task of providing an integrated education, we deliberately set goals that go well beyond the pure transfer of knowledge. To this end, courses that reach above and beyond the core programmes are introduced in phases. The mentoring programme, which is available to all students at the Bachelor's, Master's and Ph.D. levels, is an important part of this concept. We also seek to more strongly anchor our university both on a local and national level by establishing networks among our students and notable figures in the fields of politics, economics, media, art, culture and science. This integration of experience into our degree courses not only promotes the development of our students – it also enriches university life as a whole. The Mentoring Programme is a cooperation between the University of St.Gallen (HSG) and HSG Alumni.
