Alumni mentorship program

Macquarie Business School welcomes our graduates to LIFT – a free and flexible online flash mentoring program for alumni.

LIFT your career potential through the key pillars of our mentoring program:

  • Leadership
  • Involvement
  • Friendship
  • Transformation.

Flash mentoring style

Flash mentoring is a unique format that allows you to engage in multiple short-term mentoring partnerships.

Each of our members can connect, exchange knowledge and work on strategies for success with a wide selection of Macquarie Business School’s more than 95,000 alumni.

Our alumni include experts from various industries and professions, including:

  • business leaders
  • industry professionals
  • entrepreneurs
  • innovators.


The LIFT program provides an opportunity for our alumni community to support and motivate one another.

Mentoring offers a safe space to:

  • workshop ideas
  • soundboard new initiatives
  • gain a different approach.

Whether you choose to be a mentor or a mentee, the experience prepares you for career challenges ahead and provides an excellent opportunity to build mutually beneficial partnerships.

Digital access

Unlike regular mentoring initiatives, our digital platform offers a variety of benefits while putting you in complete control of your user experience.

You can connect and communicate on a global scale. Our vast network provides endless opportunities for self-improvement.

Hear from program participants

Leaders often tell me they need a mentor to progress. My advice to them is to simply choose five people over twelve months who they could learn from and invite them to lunch! The LIFT Program provides a platform for alumni to do just that. If you can take just one insight away from a conversation, you’ll be one step closer to achieving your goals.

Some of the best advice I have received in my career came from mentorship, either formal or informal. Whether you are a young professional who is just starting to build a dream career or an accomplished veteran who is thinking about giving and helping the younger generations, start a mentorship program. You will be amazed with the rewards.
