An Advisor is advising her student for her curriculum

Advising is a partnership between you, your graduate program advisor, and your academic program director or faculty advisor.  

All students are assigned an advisor who will help design a plan incorporating your academic, personal, and professional goals. 

Your assigned advisor is listed on the first page of your Program Evaluation. You can also check theMyAdvisor tab on MySuffolk. 

Who's Who: Graduate Program Advisors vs. Faculty Advisors

The Graduate program advisors within the Sawyer Business School provide academic and administrative advice. We'll help you make the most of your time here by offering the following:

  • Information about your curriculum
  • Graduate requirements
  • Policies and procedures
  • Academic planning
  • Graduation planning
  • Other general advising questions and concerns

We'll connect you to opportunities inside and outside the classroom—tutoring services, professional development events, networking opportunities, and on-campus recruiting fairs.

Your program director and faculty advisors are your subject and career experts. We encourage you to seek their recommendations for career preparations and advice about a profession or industry. For some programs you will work closely with your program director or faculty advisor to select courses specific to your career goals or concentration.
