Every year, each of our MTE Students is matched with an industry mentor: an experienced and highly placed industry professional who can share real-world experience and knowledge.
Through the Mentoring partnership, our students gain valuable insights into professional life, and our mentors enjoy the satisfaction of leaving a lasting legacy with a new generation of young leaders.
How does mentoring work?
Three times a year we bring together a network of approximately 40 mentors coming from different industries/companies who volunteer to follow and support the MTE students during their Master.
Every year, we assign one student to each mentor. We match the mentors/students pairs according to industry sectors or interests, education field, etc.

Applied Industry Analysis
During the spring semester, the students are required to work more closely with their mentors on a compulsory applied company and industry analysis of a firm as agreed upon by the student and her/his mentor (Lecturer: Eugene De Groot). The intent of this project is to encourage interchange between students and their mentors. Each student, in consultation with her or his mentor, will choose a company that the student will analyze in context of its primary industry. The company may be that of the mentor, but doesn’t have to be.
