Graduate Student Resources
The College of Business offers comprehensive academic advising with support from both professional advising staff and faculty. The academic advising syllabus outlines the advising relationship and the responsibilities of both advisors and advisees. The syllabus is a helpful resource to students during their academic journey.
Business Refresher Courses
The College of Business offers free online “refresher courses” in the areas of accounting, economics, finance, business ethics, communication, and quantitative skills. The courses are self-paced, ungraded, and are available solely for academic support. These modules can be particularly useful for students who have waived out of a foundation course but find that a “refresher” may be needed before attempting an MBA core course in that area. To request to be registered for one or more of the refresher courses, please send an email from your EMU e-mail account with your name, student number, and desired course(s). You will be registered and then sent a confirmation email with instructions on how to log in and access the course(s).
Students in MBA core course FIN 620 Financial Administration Policies are strongly encouraged to view and refer to this video as needed throughout the semester. It is a detailed (1 hour and 20 minutes) example of financial statement projection.
Any student who needs a review of introduction to financial statements and accounting terminology could benefit from watching this approximately 30-minute video.
Academic Resources for All Students
The University Writing Center offers one-on-one support to all EMU students (graduate and undergraduate) to improve writing skills.
