The major aim of these programs is enlightening our students based on the dynamics of business environment. The project scope is highly based on providing help to our students in terms of their career development. As a result of one-to-one interaction, the mentors experience a reverse mentoring that will help them to cope with generation gap problems. Moreover, the mentors are organizing field trips to demonstrate the business environment to our students. As a result of this collaboration, the awareness of our students towards business life is increasing. Our partners of this program are ESİAD (Ege Sanayicileri ve İşinsanları Derneği) and Güven Hastaneleri.
