Join ESE Gateway


What is ESE Gateway?
ESE Gateway is a mentoring platform developed for the Erasmus School of Economics (ESE), Erasmus University Rotterdam. The platform facilitates networking between students and alumni of the ESE. Users in the ESE Gateway system will find many students and alumni from different specialisations of the ESE, from Marketing to International Economics. The platform is developed based on the goal to connect great talents of the ESE, and become means for them to share knowledge and experiences across generations.

How does it work?
Here, alumni and students are able to connect in the form of mentoring. A student mentee chooses his/her own alumni mentor(s), based on their professional and personal interests, and vice-versa, an alumnus chooses his/her mentee(s) who best fits their expertise and experience. A mutual agreement is required from both sides. Only then, you have a connection! The mentor-mentee connection will last for 3 months by default, and can be extended voluntarily.

Who can be an ESE Gateway mentor?
You can become an ESE Gateway mentor if you have graduated with a diploma from the Erasmus School of Economics and not currently a student here. For example, if you have graduated from one of the ESE bachelor programs, you cannot become a mentor if you are currently continuing with your Masters at the ESE.
