All Graduate Students:
Please remember to fill out course evaluations on Zagweb during the last two weeks of MBA & MAcc classes. Course evaluations provide important feedback to the program and faculty about the curriculum. If course evaluations are not available, be sure to inform your professor and/or Adriane Leithauser.
Have You Moved or Changed Email Accounts?
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your updated contact information (email address, address, employment information). Please note that all current students are expected to check their Zagmail accounts; however, we are able to update your preferred secondary email address.
500 Level MBA & MAcc Courses: If your advisor has evaluated your prerequisites and determined that you are required to take one or more 500 level prerequisites, you should be able to register for them on your own in most cases. You should also be able to register for the 600 level course they are a pre-requisite to in the following term.
For example, if you are required to take MBUS 501 Stats Review in Summer 1, you can register for MBUS 613 Quant & Stats Analysis in Summer 2 without getting an error.
