CSB is committed to aid in the professional and personal development of all its students. Graduates will not only be leaders but also individuals of character who will make significant impact wherever they go. The Mentorship programme is a step in this direction, where each student gets the unique opportunity to be mentored by some of the most accomplished professionals in the region.

Each student is assigned a mentor after the professional development team profiles them, and gets an idea of who they would like to be mentored by. Mentors commit to interacting with their mentees at least once every term, over the course of 8 terms, using a mode of communication that is most suitable for them. Should they wish, they can extend their interaction to beyond the course by mutual consent. Here are the mentors who will work with CSB’s Founding Batch, the Class of 2016-17:
