Do step out to learn more about student advising.

First Year and Pre-Major Advising

Academic Affairs and Advising Counselors (AAAC)

If this is your first year at our University, you may have a lot of questions in your transition to becoming a university student. That is why our UG Programs Office of the School of Business and Management has AAACs ready to help. Every student is assigned a dedicated AAAC, who will be pleased to discuss with you your academic plans in the coming few years, provide you with an overview of your curricular and co-curricular programs and activities and connect you to different resources from the University.

Advising by appointment

Students are strongly encouraged to make a 30-minute appointment with the designated AAAC to discuss matters related to your academic needs and personal development. Please complete the online form "My Educational Plan" before the meeting. Login here to make an appointment and complete the form. (Student Advising System will be available in early-September 2017.)

Peer Mentors

Do you need a different perspective or a helping hand from another university student? Once you are admitted to HKUST Business School, we will provide you with a designated peer mentor, so you can have someone to ask for tips and advice when settling in. They can be your valuable resource person to share their experiences with you.
