Advising for MBA Students

Advising Resources for Incoming and Current MBA Students

If you are a new student in the UNCG MBA Program, welcome! We are excited to work with you and help you find success through this program.

A great place to start is by referencing the Newly Admitted Student Checklist. This Checklist is designed to help you get set up with your accounts, course registration, tuition payments, and everything else you need to do before the start of the semester. Another useful resource is the MBA Student Handbook 2018-2019, which contains information on how to get started as a UNCG MBA Student, outline campus resources, highlight important dates and deadlines, introduce you to the MBA faculty and staff, and more!
