How to connect with us:

We enjoy meeting with students to help with your academic experience! Feel free to connect with the Academics Team anytime with questions, ideas, or simply say hi! We know FTMBA students are balancing multiple commitments so our dedicated drop-in advising is designed during times students are most likely to be free.

Dedicated Drop-in Hours:

Speak with an Academic Advisor by stopping by drop-in virtual advising Monday – Thursday between 12:30pm – 2:00pm (PST).

Academic Advising Appointments:

We invite you to sign up for a one-on-one academic advising appointment if you are not available to attend virtual drop-in hours or if you would like to set up a dedicated time for a more in-depth conversation. You will find that Kristie, Lucas and Kate have 30 min academic advising appointment slots spread out during the week for you to choose from.


Connect with us on Slack via the #Academics Channel by using the @ftacademics name.
