Students in the H-E-B School of Business and Administration benefit from personalized advising throughout their time at the University of the Incarnate Word. This is achieved with help from advising specialists and faculty advisors.
The H-E-B School of Business has two full-time Advising Specialists. These advisors are assigned to incoming first-time students during their first five semesters on campus. Transfer business students are assigned an Advising Specialist for their first semester only.
The role of our professional advisors is to assist students with course selections and degree plan guidance. They also help with audit reviews and discuss student responsibilities and community service requirements. Professional advisors are a connection to other resources on campus, guiding students on the path to graduation.

Ms. Romos-Cortes advises students in the following business concentrations:
Ms. Ramos-Cortes joined the H-E-B School of Business in the fall of 2018. Before coming to UIW, she was an academic advisor at the Texas A&M-San Antonio College of Business for 6 years. She holds an MBA from Texas A&M - San Antonio.
After the designated time with our advising specialists, students will transition to a faculty advisor in their chosen field of study. This transition takes places after a student has completed his or her first five semesters. The transition for transfer students takes places after one semester completed at UIW.
The role of a faculty advisor is largely the same as that of an advising specialist, but a faculty advisor also serves as a mentor to students. Students receive advice from faculty that is specific to their chosen field. The faculty-student partnership is vital to a student's success in the classroom and in the marketplace upon graduation.
