Developmental Outcomes

  • Develop and improve business acumen;
  • Be supported by, challenged and motivated by an experienced industry professional (mentor);
  • Develop increased confidence, self-awareness, emotional intelligence and an understanding of personal brand and value proposition;
  • Identify career pathways and develop career goals;
  • Gain an understanding of different business sectors and industries;
  • Develop an innovative and inquisitive outlook;
  • Build new connections and strong professional networks;
  • Improve communication and interpersonal skills and;
  • Hone excellent time management skills

Program requirements

Students participating in MomentuM will not receive course credit. MomentuM is a voluntary program offered to a select cohort of students who have exhibited a genuine interest in professional development and the opportunity to learn from an industry mentor.

Before commencing the MomentuM program, each student (mentee) must sign a mentoring agreement with their nominated mentor and attend a compulsory pre-commencement workshop.

MomentuM is an intensive, voluntary program and requires a high-degree of personal commitment and strong time management.
