Abstract: Mentoring is now accorded prime importance in most western worlds to develop youth and to make them employable. It is a sustained relationship between a young person the mentee/protegee and an adult, the mentor wherein the young person is provided with support, guidance and assistance. Mentoring programmes which have been successful in the developed counties will be of great utility for Saudi Arabian students. Mentoring will provide the college students with the required academic and other support services to help them become employable and enhance their chances for success in college and after graduation. Empirical works have proved that mentoring enhances academic performances, increased college retention rates and examination grades. As in the case of other countries, Saudi students also require emotional and psychological support to be successful in academics and their early stages of employment. Mentoring is capable of providing these supports. This research presents a model of mentoring that is capable of enhancing academic outcome of business students. The model is having practical implications and if implemented will enhance the overall employability of the business students of Saudi Arabia.
