Academic Advising

Academic Advising is a collaborative process through which students, guided by professional academic advisors; realize their maximum educational benefits available to them by better understanding themselves and learning how to use the resources of the University of Miami and the Miami Business School to meet their own educational needs and aspirations with their ultimate goal toward graduation.

Academic Advising Partnership Overview
