“A candle does not lose its light by igniting the other one”

Lack of mentorship and coaching is the most criticized topic by millennials during their studies and on their first jobs. GDEXA’s Mentorship program is addressing this high demand and preparing the young generation for the digital future of work.

This program is highly complementary to the academic knowledge students gain during their studies, where the focus is mainly on theoretical content and traditional curriculum.

” During my bachelor studies, I was so focused on lectures and passing exams. I missed looking outside the box and noticed late, that practical experience and network is even more important for my career. GDEXA’s mentorship is exactly closing this gap and helps me a lot to shape my profile. “
