Financial Management - Buddy Program



About the program

The Financial Management Buddy Program is a peer-to-peer initiative that helps the new students to make an easier start in a new place with the help of more experienced buddies. It is designed to maintain more responsive and close relationships between the peer members of the KU community. The major benefit for the new students is to get accommodated more quickly in the new environment and to have the feeling of support from somebody experienced to call on various study & student life issues at KU.

How does the program work?

First-year students will be acquainted with more experienced volunteers, by first checking their LinkedIn profiles in order to register with a volunteer who matches their inspirations in terms of career path, specialization, hobbies etc. In order to guarantee equal support for all new students we set a limit of 5-7 students per Buddy. Buddies will stay in touch at ease, there are no rules how often or in which form to meet and the initiative during the first year should be on first-year students.

Why to become a Buddy Program Volunteer?

Becoming a Buddy Program Volunteer will further strengthen our community, provide an opportunity to meet interesting people from different countries, optionally practice other languages, develop valuable interpersonal and communication skills, flexibility, leadership, teamwork and problem-solving capabilities.

How to become a Buddy?

The only thing you need to become a Buddy Volunteer is a willingness to share your own experience about first steps in KU. Communication will take place from time to time without a certain outlined commitment.

Fill in the registration form and await contact from the program coordinator:
