Amrita Alumni Mentoring Program

Build connections with our global network of exceptional alumni by serving as a mentor, mentee, or both. Apply here for Amrita Alumni Mentoring Program.

This multi-industry mentoring program offers current Amrita students the chance to get mentoring from skilled Amrita alumni who are active in their chosen subject of interest or a closely related career. The program’s objective is to assist the growth of students’ employability by enabling them to build informed professional insights and achieve their career goals.


The Amrita Alumni Mentoring Program includes two distinct mentoring components that can accommodate any commitment level or schedule. You can select a mentorship program that suits your needs or choose to enroll in both programs.


Short-term mentoring is ideal for alumni with demanding schedules who can’t dedicate themselves to an extended mentoring relationship. This is based on one-time in-person or online interactions that deliver knowledge or skills when mentees need them, as opposed to a connection that lasts months.

Who can enroll for Short-term Mentoring?

  • Alumni from all Amrita campuses who have completed their graduation
  • Amrita Alumni who are Industry professionals/Entrepreneurs/Academicians/Creative professionals
  • Amrita faculty from all campuses


The extended mentoring program connects qualified students and recent graduates with teachers or experienced alumni who share their interests and career ambitions. Over the student’s final semester, the mentee and mentor work together one-on-one to achieve the mentee’s career goals.

Who can enroll for Extended Mentoring?

  • Amrita Alumni who are Industry professionals/Entrepreneurs/Academicians/Creative professionals
  • Amrita faculty from all campuses
  • Must have at least 2 years of professional industry experience


As a participant in the Amrita Alumni Mentoring program, you will have the opportunity to ask for a mentor to help you with your academic improvement, career advice, and personal growth. You will be able to network with business executives, industry leaders, and admired entrepreneurs who will assist you in developing your career. Even though we promote regular communication between mentors and mentees like a once-a-month phone call, in-person meeting, or email conversation, you can decide together on the type and frequency of communication.

  • Select a mentor based on your interests and needs
