Advising Tips

Admitted SBE minors will need to email Elizabeth Gordon (eg@spu.edu) every quarter prior to registration week, to have major restrictions lifted from upper division SBE courses. Do this in advance, so registration is a breeze.

Non-SBE majors – If you have an SBE faculty advisor assigned to you from USEM, be sure to update your faculty advisor to someone in your intended major by the end of your freshman year.

SBE Freshmen – Make sure you are planning each quarter's class schedule in a way that makes you eligible to apply to SBE in your sophomore year. Meet with your Faculty Advisor in SBE regularly for mentorship and direction.

SBE Sophomores – Make sure you are making good headway in your BUS/ACCT/ECN lower division courses, and that you've completed BUS 2910 by the end of the year.

SBE Juniors – You should be on your way to completing 3000 level courses in the program. Look into internships, the mentor program, and leadership opportunities this year! Be sure to apply for graduation by spring quarter, and have a course plan laid out for your last year.

SBE Seniors – You are almost done! Email Elizabeth Gordon (eg@spu.edu) is you have any questions about degree completion or requirements.

Why I Work at SPU

Elizabeth Gordon, Undergraduate Services Supervisor

I work at SPU because God has sparked a fire in my heart for serving undergraduate students. I consider it a privilege participating in the story he is writing for each one them ― it is one of my greatest joys. I work in SBE because I believe in its mission to raise up business leaders who aren’t focused solely on themselves, but who give back fruitfully to their communities, ultimately serving the kingdom of heaven.
