This study examines the efficacy of mentoring and how it helps to increase the performance of PG management students. A mixed-methods approach was taken to identify themes that emerged from mentoring conversations and the impact of mentoring on these. All participants reported positively on their experience, highlighting that mentoring enabled action, developed confidence and improved personal effectiveness. Some participants reported that mentoring improved their wellbeing. This study suggests ways in which mentoring helps PG management students to address challenges they are facing and makes recommendations for their performance.
