KSBL in collaboration with Engro Corp. initiated the KSBL-Engro Manager Mentor Program for MBA students. In league with the KSBL focus on providing beyond-the-classroom study and building leadership skills in its students, the Manager Mentor Program is designed in similarity to the ongoing CEO mentorship program.
The program was successfully launched at an introductory session organized by Engro Corp. and held at the KSBL campus on December 03, 2014. This was attended by the KSBL Program Director, faculty, Engro Managers and KSBL students from the Class of 2015. Mr. Hussain Dawood was present as the Chief Guest. He emphasized on the value-added by good mentoring in a one-to-one setting and the practical dimension this brings to aspects studied in the classroom. He encouraged students to make the most of this opportunity, to learn from some of the best corporate executives in the country.
The session was an opportunity for students to be introduced to their mentors, and to develop a rapport that will continue to be built over subsequent meetings until the students graduate. The core objective of this series is to connect students with business executives, to help develop know-how of corporate culture, practices, chain of command and to build a relationship aimed toward grooming professional capabilities, whilst allowing the mentor to inculcate values and skills necessary for leadership and growth.
