Peer Advisor Program
What is a Peer Advisor?
Peer Advisors (PAs) are a group of CBS MBA students dedicated to introducing new students to the CBS experience. PAs will help welcome all new students during Orientation in August and/or January and contribute to shaping the CBS community culture. They facilitate important conversations around academics, careers, and community, represent a broad range of CBS experiences, and are integral members of first-year clusters.
