Albers is accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. As of July 2014, less than five percent of the world’s business schools and less than one third of U.S. business schools have achieved business accreditation from AACSB.
Advising week is always both an excting time and a busy time for the Albers New Student Mentors. We LOVE it because it is when we get to catch up and check in with all our mentees. Regardless if it is required or not we all love hearing about how our mentees have been and what has changed in their life, and we are ever hopful that they enjoy meeting with us just as much. I would personally like to thank all my mentees (you know who you are) for getting in contact, coming to events, and scheduling appointments. It only makes my job that much easier, and don't worry, I have heard positive things from the other mentors about their mentees as well.
Our only hope is that we help you with taking all that is required while maintaining a resonable schedule. This is the last quarter our mentees are required to meet with us, and it is sooooo sad. I personally hope that I have helped them academically, of course, but also that I have been an influencial part of the first mile in their great SU experience.

The New Student Mentor (NSM) Program is a paid leadership program in the Albers School of Business and Economics. It consists of a selected group of eight junior and senior Business students who provide academic advising and mentoring to first-year Business students, as well as host quarterly events to keep the freshmen connected to the Business School. New Student Mentors serve as role models and work closely to assist the freshmen advisees in their transition to college so that the “first year experience” is a good one. Many of the New Student Mentors are in this position now because of the positive experience they had with their New Student Mentors when they were freshmen in the Albers School. The New Student Mentors represent what an Albers student is to both the internal and external community.
