Become a Mentor

Becoming a mentor is about helping the next generation of business professionals prepare for the transition from university to the business world. At the same time, you will develop your own skills to help you become a better manager and leader.

As a Haskayne mentor, you will have access to mentor-only events, networking seminars, and other Haskayne School of Business functions.


A successful mentorship relationship is dependent on the amount of time and effort that a mentor and mentee put in to creating a great experience. Mentors are expected to meet with their mentees at least six times throughout the academic year (September – April). Of course this is only a minimum requirement; we encourage additional touch-ins with your mentees. Your mentorship meetings can include:

  • Lunch meetings
  • Speaker seminars
  • Workplace visits
  • Phone calls/video conferencing
  • Job shadowing

We hope to partner students with professionals who can offer advice and guidance as our students prepare to transition from university to the business world. We seek mentors who hold an undergraduate degree and who have been working professionally for at least five years.

Accounting Students Serving in Not-For-Profit Organizations

New this year, this pilot project pairs students with not-for-profit organizations. The students, who should be at least third-year accounting majors are expected to spend between four and eight hours per month supporting accounting activities for the organization. To maximize the learning opportunity for students in this unique role, students will have access to a mentor who is a member of the not-for-profit organization’s board of directors as well as a mentor outside the board that provides group mentoring to multiple accounting student volunteers. The board of directors may also consider inviting the student to at least one board meeting per year. For more information about this program, please contact CCAL Projects Coordinator Jeff Millar at

Lunch with Leaders

The Lunch with Leaders program is designed to give Haskayne School of Business students an opportunity to make meaningful connections with established business leaders linking a member of the business community with a group of three to five students over a lunch. The one-hour conversation provides opportunity for a business leader to lead a conversation about key topics, open the discussion to questions from students, or a combination of both. 

These lunches can be hosted by an organization downtown, in which case students will travel to participate in the lunch, or at the Haskayne School of Business. The program is provided in partnership with Haskayne’s Commerce Undergraduate Society (CUS).

If you are interested in joining the program and staying up-to-date on upcoming lunch opportunities, please complete a Student Application Form online here or learn more about this program by contacting CCAL Program Advisor Natalie Valle at or stopping by the CCAL offices in Scurfield Hall (SH 223 and 233).

Community of Advanced Leadership

The Community for Advanced Leadership, business leadership that builds sustainable capability of people and profit, is growing! 

Our community is active through student and business involvement with CCAL and informational, social and speaking events and competitions.
