With a goal to better cater for student needs under the 4-year degree curriculum, The BBA Programme has developed an academic advising/ mentoring system to assist our undergraduate students to make smooth transition from school to University and to choose concentration that fit their interests and abilities.
Each student will be assigned a staff member as Mentor in the First Semester of Year 1 and each concentration has appointed an academic advisor to provide advising related to the concentration from their Year 2 studies. Moreover, BBA office organizes a series of activities aligning to the goals every academic year, including New Student Orientation, Concentration Briefing, Double Concentration Briefing, etc.
