ASS Mentoring Program DOUBLE-(P)ASS

The graduate association ASS Alumni Sport Media/Sport Management of the German Sport University Cologne offers once a year the mentoring program “DOUBLE-(P)ASS”. The aim of the program is to prepare students of the Bachelor’s degree program in Sport Management and Sport Communication for their career entry in the various occupational fields of the program. DOUBLE (P)ASS refers to a 1:1 ratio of mentor (graduate with professional experience) and mentee (student) who pass the ball to each other with the aim of facilitating the mentee’s career entry. In this way the mentees can benefit from the experience and the network of the mentor on their personal path into their profession.

A suitable mentor will be selected on the basis of the application and according to individual wishes and needs.
