The below noted Action Steps will help you most efficiently transition into your new role as a graduate business student. Please follow these steps carefully.


2. Review the Graduate Business Student Handbook for details on:
    • Rules and Guidelines on Foundation Courses
    • Degree Requirements
    • Curriculum Options
    • Sequencing
    • Support on Course Selection and Registration
    • Academic Advising
    • Career Resources

3. After reviewing the Handbook, contact the Office of Graduate Business Programs at to set up a 1:1 meeting with an Academic Advisor for support on planning course selections in your first semesters. 

4. RSVP for and attend a Small Group Orientation session. These meetings are informal and social gatherings where you'll get to know the Graduate Business Studies team, we'll get to know you, you'll meet other new students, and we'll share ideas on how to get the most out of your program. To view dates/times and RSVP, visit the Orientation Survey.

5. If you think you might be eligible for additional Foundation waivers, please see the process for requesting an appeal/re-review in the Graduate Business Programs Foundation Fact Sheet.

6. We encourage our students to go beyond the classroom to build relationships now that will serve you during your graduate studies - and throughout your career.  You don’t need to wait for classes to start or for the next Networking Event to begin connecting with other MBA, MS Finance, COGS and CAGS students. One action item you might want to consider is to freshen up your LinkedIn profile and then connect with members of RGSAAB (Rohrer Graduate Student and Alumni Advisory Board). RGSAAB members are actively engaged in academics and shared community connections that elevate the student experience and the reputation of Rohrer Graduate Programs.

Again, congratulations and welcome to Rowan!
