Entrepreneurial-minded students and alumni will be able to meet with mentors to get advice and ask questions

London Business School has announced the launch of a new entrepreneur mentor scheme in Dubai.

In the new program, Dubai-based students and alumni who are interested in entrepreneurship will have year-round access to four entrepreneurs from the region, from whom they will be able to ask questions and get advice. "Students, who currently have remote access to London-based mentors, will now have direct access to mentors up to twice a month for one-on-one consultations," according to an LBS press release.

According to Mohamed Nassar, who graduated from LBS in 2012 and then went on to set up his own company, Dubai is a great place to start a business. It "is one of the few places in the Middle East where you can truly succeed by your own merit," he said. "In Dubai we are so used to importing ideas or products from the West or the East, I think now is the time to start making them our own.”

The mentorship program will presumably be open to current students and alumni from the school's MBA and EMBA programs. LBS current offers an an Executive-level MBA program in Dubai.
