ISOM Information Sessions THIS WEEK!

Considering applying for on-campus transfer to any of Isenberg School of Management's majors? 
Don't miss the information sessions being offered this week!  To apply for on-campus transfer into any of the Isenberg School of Management programs, students MUST attend an information session (for any or each of the majors they wish to apply for) and complete an application / statement of interest.
If you're interested in the Resource Economics major, Group Information Sessions will be held Tuesday, September 14 at 5:30pm and Wednesday, September 15 at 12:15pm.  These meetings will be held in Stockbridge 217.

If you are interested in applying to the BBA, Sport Management or Hospitality and Tourism Management programs, there are two information sessions being offered this week, one on Wednesday, September 15th and the other on Thursday, September 16th. These info sessions will both be held in ISOM 206 at 5:30 pm. 

Here are some tips to keep in mind if you plan on attending:
  1. Get there early! To avoid fighting for a seat or worse, interrupting the session, be sure to get there approximately TEN MINUTES PRIOR to the start time. Treat it like a job interview and be professional--you don't have to wear your Sunday best, but you do want to make a good impression
  2. Know which session to attend! Upon arriving, they will direct you to different rooms based on your interests, i.e., BBA, Sport Management, or HTM. Make sure you're in the right place. If you have multiple interests in SOM (both BBA and Sports Management, for example), you should attend an info session for BOTH programs.  Remember: Sport Management requires attendance at one of their info sessions before you can take a Sports Management course!
  3. Be informed! Read the different websites and be familiar with the program you are interested in--as well as procedures for applying. You can find general ISOM information about on-campus transfer here. **Note that the fall application deadline will be December 1st.**
  4. Have an Alternate Major in mind! Remember that you will be required to apply in order to gain admission to ISOM--and that applications, by nature, can be rejected. So it's always a good idea to have an alternate major in mind just in case. For more information on suitable alternates (if you're currently undeclared), you can call (413) 545-2191 and make an appointment to see an advisor in the Undergraduate Advising Office.
