Academic Advising

Students admitted to the MBA program are assigned a faculty academic advisor whose job is to provide guidance to students on academic issues associated with their chosen course of study. This includes course selection, substitution, study plan approval,  and concerns arising during the program.  Note:  Students are required to deliver a study plan, approved by their advisor, to the Registrar by the end of the first semester.

Students should take full advantage of the advising opportunities available to them by arranging visits or telephone calls with their faculty academic advisor. The name of the student's advisor is in their admission packet. Advisors are assigned according to specific concentration as indicated in the following table:
