Starting in 2006, we also feature annual Exchange events that provide our members a forum to lead discussions on business subjects or on topics about which they are passionate. Today we offer vibrant channels into the Munich international networking community and co-ordinate closely with the Bavarian Center for Transatlantic Relations (Amerikahaus) and other Munich organizations.

Mentors – Experienced AGBC Munich members and alumni of the Amerika-Institut Alumni Association who are interested in supporting students about to finish their BA or MA studies with job/career- and business-related questions. They should have time to meet with the mentees at least once a month and potentially be available every now and then for e-mails.

Mentors and mentees will be able to meet each other in a “Speed Dating”-format before they are paired. This means: every mentee gets to speak with every mentor for 5 to 10 minutes. After that, they can each make a list of their top-three mentors/mentees. Everyone will be paired with one of their top-three-choices. This initial event takes place online on 25 October 2021.
