Business Management Advisement

The Business Management academic advisement team is committed to helping you, the student, achieve your academic goals, enhance your educational experience, and prepare for your future professional endeavors.  We want you to have access to all the necessary tools to successfully meet all of your graduation requirements. However, it is your responsibility as the student to ensure that these requirements have been met.  You can access your degree audit by logging onto DegreeWorks.

We ask that current students please complete the Business Management Student Survey Results of this survey will be used to improve the degree program and resources available to you from the School of Business. 

Schedule An Appointment

Business Management should schedule an advisement appointment once every semester (in October for Spring registration and in April for fall registration).

Business Management majors who have more than 30 college credits are advised by our department. If you have less than 30 credits, you will contact the AAIC for advisement.

You can request a phone advisement appointment or request an updated check sheet with course suggestions to be emailed to you if you can not attend an in-person advising appointment.    

To schedule an appointment for business management academic advisement please contact our department by phone or e-mail.
