Full-time MBA and MAcc Orientation

Congratulations and Welcome to the Eberhardt MBA and MAcc Programs on behalf of the Eberhardt Faculty and Staff!

We are excited you will be joining us this Fall! We will use this page as a resource to aid you in making sure everything is in order before you step foot on campus. It will provide you with a checklist of items you may still need to attend to and provide you with resources and contacts that will help to familiarize you with the Pacific campus, Eberhardt School and the Stockton community.

The first important event is a mandatory MBA and MAcc Programs Orientation on Friday, August 25 from 9:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Please note that international students must arrive sooner than these dates. Please work with the Office of International Programs and Services to determine arrival and international orientation dates.

We recommend that out-of-state students arrive in Stockton a few days before Orientation begins on August 25 so that issues of housing and transportation can be resolved prior to the start of orientation.

In addition, we want to provide you with a central location where you can find key links, resources and contacts that will help you now and throughout the Fall 2017 semester. If you find other resources you find helpful, let us know and we will add them to this site.
