Being a part of our mentorship program gives you the opportunity to get an experienced mentor to help and guide you, along with an amazing network.

How does it work?
First of all, every student at LUSEM can apply to be an adept, no matter what semester you’re in and you don’t need any prior knowledge. The mentorship begins with your application to become an adept. Here you specify what you want to get out of your mentorship. Next step is up to us to macht you with one of our fantastic mentors. We take your applications in consideration and try to make the best match possible. You’re also matched with a co-adept giving you the opportunity to expand your network! You’re a part of the mentorship program preferably during a year, exceptions can be made if you have an exchange semester planned. You will meet your mentor 2-3 times a semester and it’s up to you to make the most out of your mentorship. Every semester we have limited mentors therefore we can’t guarantee a spot in the mentorship program.

Does this sound like something for you? Then don’t hesitate to apply! If you have any questions contact us here, network.wilma@lundaekonomerna.se The application opens at the beginning of each semester. We look forward to hearing from you! 

Become an Adept

The WILMA network consists of driven and motivated students, who study business administration, economics, or system sciences at Lund University School of Economics and Management, one of the highest-ranked business schools in Sweden. Our WILMA mentors can be found in different companies and areas, but they are all driven and successful women who want to inspire and develop others. Through this collaboration, you get the unique opportunity to meet our members and to build valuable relationships at an early stage. 

As a mentor, you have the chance to get in contact with two students that will be your adepts for a year. The mentorship program consists of two to three private meetings with you and your adepts every semester. In addition to the meetings, WILMA provides interesting and enriching events for you to get to know the rest of the mentors and their adepts. 

If you want to be a part of something today that can change tomorrow, do not hesitate to contact vice.wilma@lundaekonomerna.se for more information. 

Take the chance to broaden your network and meet the leaders of the future!

WILMA Vision

Once a semester, we arrange a lecture by an inspiring woman for all students within LundaEkonomerna. It can be different types of lectures, with different themes. Food will be served while you will have time to network with the rest of the attendants. During the lecture you will be able to ask questions to the lecturer and hopefully get new inspiration and motivation. 

 

Network Nights

This is an evening where we, once a semester, invite the adepts and mentors within the network to a dinner. The evening is the perfect opportunity for both adepts and mentors to meet and socialize during more relaxed circumstances. During the evening we offer a mingle, workshop/lecture, dinner and of course some entertainment.

Adepts events

We want the adepts to get as much out of the program as possible. Therefore, we arrange some different events every semester for our network. This could be everything from a more career-focused event (visiting a company) to a more relaxed event, as a brunch or an afterwork. During these events, the adepts have the chance to share their experiences and inspire each other. 

International Women's Day

On International women's day, WILMA also wants to celebrate all amazing women worldwide together with students within LundaEkonomerna. We will offer events as lectures and workshops during the days around 8thof march. To end the celebration in the best way, we arrange a woman sitting with a mingle, three course dinner and entertainment during the evening.
