  • 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

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.
