Back to Academic Advising

Academic advising

During the length of your Business degree, you are encouraged to seek advice. If you need help with choosing courses, majors, minors or concentrations, to plan your terms and find options to strengthen your degree, an academic advisor can assist you.

As early as the second term of the program, students are invited to identify their learning disposition towards a specific area or areas in business. Knowing your strengths and affinities will help you decide the direction of your degree.

It is recommended to declare a major, double major, minor or concentration in business or in other disciplines in the second half of your program (after completion of 20 term courses). The major builds primarily on elective courses, for that reason in the last two years of the program, students must focus on taking the appropriate electives to complete their major.

Undergraduate program advising

All BBA and BAM students are encouraged to contact our academic advisor, Marina Hernandez by email at sjadvising@unb.ca or make an appointment for online academic advising (using MS Teams which is available to all UNB students via myUNB Portal).

Students seek academic advising if they need assistance with the following:

  • Planning the program and goals.
  • Understanding university regulations and policies.
  • Understanding terminology and program sequence.
  • Taking advantage of campus resources and student services.
  • Finding answers to question about procedures and curriculum changes.

Marina will help you to find the answers to most of your questions or, she will put you on the right direction to find them.

Before your meeting with Marina, please prepare:

  • A list of your questions or requests.
  • Supporting documents for your questions or requests.
  • A working flow chart of your program.
  • If you are in your second year or upper level, ensure you have your audit form up to date.
