Gabelli School Introduces Inaugural Gabelli Graduate School Peer Advisors
As the Gabelli School of Business welcomed students from all across the globe back to campus in person and virtually for the 2020-2021 academic year, the graduate school introduced a new initiative to make the transition for new students easier.
The Gabelli Graduate Peer Advising program, launched by the Office of Graduate Advising and Student Engagement connects established graduate students with incoming new students to provide support, guidance, information and help with their transition to the Gabelli School of Business and New York City.
The 16 inaugural Gabelli Graduate Peer Advisors will work with the Office of Graduate Advising and Student Engagement, university administrators, program directors and the Student Advisory Council (SAC) to collaborate on ideas and represent all ten Gabelli School graduate programs.
Urvesh Bhadani, a peer advisor and consecutive degree student of MS in Business Analytics and MS in Management, noted that when he came to Fordham from Surat, India, “there were people who guided and helped me, and I realized how difficult it would be for me if no one were there. Therefore, I want to partake in this journey and help those who are in need.”
All new students can connect with any of a peer advisor of their choice, whether because they are participating in the same academic program, or because they have similar backgrounds, hobbies, or career interests.
Students may contact them directly and individually using their emails found here, or via the “Ask Your Peer Advisor” tab in your Microsoft Teams program channel.
