Isenberg School of Management: Prepare Yourself!

Interested in the BBA (Accounting, Finance, Management, Marketing, Operations Management), Hospitality & Tourism Management or Sport Management majors?
There are two information sessions being offered this week, one on Wednesday, March 28 and the second on Thursday, March 29. Both info sessions are 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 haute couture, 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. 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! Sports Management requires attendance at one of their info sessions before you can take a Sports Management course!

3) Be informed! Read their website and be familiar with the program you are interested in--as well as procedures for applying. You can find information on applying here. The links at the bottom will take you to the applications for the specific departments. 

4) Have an Alternate Major in mind! Remember that you will be required to apply in order to gain admission--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, you can call (413) 545-2191 and make an appointment to see an advisor in our office.

Applications are due by May 1.

Interested in the Resource Economics major?

If you're interested in pursing a Resource Economics major, the deadline to complete an Online Statement of Interest is April 20 at noon in order to register for Fall courses as a major. In other words, if you want the most choices in terms of course access, you should complete the form by the deadline above. Once you do, you'll receive an email within 7 days to schedule an advising meeting, where you'll be able to formally declare your major. 

Need to know more before you decide? Attend an Info Session on Wednesday, March 28 at 5:30pm or Thursday, March 29 at noon in Stockbridge 208 and have a look at the department's very detailed undergraduate handbook.
