We Not just academics
Mentoring at Welingkar
  In an age and time where it is difficult to find a learned person who can help you reflect, set goals and milestones, Welingkar has been successfully unfolding the Mentoring program. We believe that, having a 'Mentor’/'Guru' to encourage and guide can make all the difference in putting in the right efforts in the right direction and making the right decisions at the right time.

In the mentoring process at Welingkar a versatile and a highly experienced person (preferably a corporate professional) volunteers to spare time unconditionally in building up a caring, sharing and supporting relationship so as to have a lasting effect on personality development, academic pursuits, professional excellence and career-related grooming of a young and talented MBA student (the Mentee) The Mentor provides guidance and direction to the Mentee.

The Mentor enthuses you to move into a direction you have chosen to take, avoiding possible pitfalls. Mentor is not a placement officer but he may prepare your placement. You have to Walk the Walk. At the end of the process you become a Management graduate with above average clarity of thoughts. Mentoring is a voluntary process for our 2nd year Management students.

All through the process the Core faculty along with the Chief Mentor, is present to facilitate the process. We strongly believe that this process of mentoring has the potential to create a 'Brand' out of you.

    Idea Contest
      At Welingkar Institute, our academic year commences with an 'Idea Contest'. Students are encouraged to articulate their ideas, put them on paper and drop them in the various drop-boxes around the campus. These ideas/concepts are scrutinized by a panel of jury comprising faculty members from diverse fields. Those who wish to carry their ideas forward are encouraged to do so. A mentor team guides these students through this journey. Some students would want to create an Intellectual Property for their idea and not do anything about it in the near future. Students who wish to explore their concept further but not start a venture of their own are encouraged to generate a research paper on their concept.
