David and Lorraine Cheng Library Connections The David and Lorraine Cheng Library provides vast resources for MBA students, providing research help, excellent sources, and ample study space.

All databases can be accessed off-campus with your University username and password. Reference librarians are available to help by calling 973-720-2116, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org or simply by visiting the library. In addition, you can request research help through the library’s homepage and arrange a one-on-one session with a librarian set up around your schedule. You can also contact the business librarian, Cara Berg, at email@example.com or 973-720-3189. Step by Step Course Advisement You will work directly with the MBA director to plan and build your academic schedule. Together, you will take a comprehensive look at the total program credits and credit waivers, review your anticipated graduation schedule, and create a written plan of action for degree completion. You may make a phone appointment, request a face-to-face meeting, connect via Skype, or submit a request for graduation credit review. Additional evening hours are available on a case-by-case basis. Each semester we will touch base with you to ensure that you are on track for graduation completion. To schedule a time to meet for academic advisement, contact Despina Martinez at 973-720-3706 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

MBA Student Residence Hall Options Graduate students may choose to reside on campus. This is an especially attractive option for our international students who want to benefit from a comfortable setting while they adjust to the University and their academic studies. Graduate students can choose a single room or select the option to have a roommate. In order to live on campus, all students must complete the housing contract, submit the deposit, and provide medical records. The Office of Residence Life is available to assist in this process after you have been accepted into the MBA program.
