At HKUST Business School, we believe in providing the best learning experience for our students, so you can grow, develop and excel in your university life and beyond. That is why we have a 360o student-advising scheme, so you can seek help from pre-major/ major counselors, faculty advisors, career counselors and cohort leaders/peer mentors.
Do step out to learn more about student advising.
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 pre-major counselors ready to help. Each cohort has a dedicated pre-major counselor, 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.

Walk-in advising during add/drop periods
During the Fall and Spring add/drop periods, pre-major students can come to SBM UG Programs Office (LSK1037) during 10:00am-12:00noon and 2:30-4:30pm for walk-in advising (limited to brief questions, up to 10 minutes) with a Pre-Major Counselor on duty for quick questions about impending issues.
Advising by appointment
Students are strongly encouraged to make a 30-minute appointment with the designated Pre-Major Counselors to discuss matters related to your academic needs and personal development. Please complete the online form "My Plan" before the meeting. Login here to make an appointment and complete the form.
Cohort Leaders/Peer Mentors
Do you need a different perspective or a helping hand from another university student? Once you are admitted to HKUST Business School, you will be able to join one of our Business Cohorts to provide you with the opportunity to mingle with and learn from your fellow students. If you are a new student, we will provide you with a designated cohort leader/peer mentor when your cohort is confirmed, 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.
If you are interested to learn more about the courses and career prospects of programs in which you intend to major, you may consult the relevant Major Faculty Advisors (see table below).
If you are a first year student and interested to have a Faculty Advisor, in addition to your Pre-Major Counselor, you may sign up voluntarily in the first term after meeting with your Pre-Major Counselor. You will be assigned a Faculty Advisor beginning from Spring of first year (2nd term) based on potential major interest and/or common nationality.
