Mentor's Engagement

I am personally committed to passing on my experience to young people.

Reinaldo Udewald, Managing Partner of WECO Consult GmbH

The HSBA master’s students in the study courses Global Management and Governance (MSc), the Executive MBA (EMBA) and Shipping (MBA) have the opportunity to take part in the mentoring programme which experienced executives from  Hamburg offer to them.

Within the framework of the mentoring programme students can ask questions concerning  their current professional background, the reconciliation of work and family life or questions on their personal development. Furthermore students can expand their networh through the contact to the their mentor or other mentors and make valuable contacts for the future.

All participants are prepared for their role as either mentor or mentee and regular exchanges during the many different events make for a vibrant programme.

The master’s students of the study courses M.Sc. Global Management & Governance and the Executive MBA benefit in their personal and professional development from the mentoring programme of the Versammlung Eines Ehrbaren Kaufmanns zu Hamburg e.V. (VEEK), i.e. the Honourable Society of Hamburg Merchants.

The VEEK embodies typical Hanseatic values that have helped merchants in Hamburg to trade and offer services successfully for centuries and that are still just as relevant in today’s business world. Experienced entrepreneurs affiliated to VEEK support and accompany the HSBA master’s students on their path to the management levels of business. This gives them a unique opportunity to benefit from the vast wealth of experience and networks of Hamburg’s entrepreneurs in addition to an excellent course of studies

The mentoring programme for the master’s students of the MBA Shipping is offered by the Verband Deutscher Reeder (VDR), i.e. the German Shipowners’ Association. Students can particularly benefit from the networking possibilities and discussion of their own professional challenges with their mentors from the maritime industry.

The VDR is a central association of the German economy. It was founded in 1907 in order to allow for a joint and consistent representation of interests. With its more than 220 member companies, the VDR represents German shipping industry as the fourth biggest merchant fleet in the world. The majority of its member companies is characterised as medium-sized companies.
