Student Professional Development Program

New Professional Development Workshops Offered

The Student Professional Development Program is a series of non-credit workshops designed to give business students the skills they need to present themselves in a professional manner throughout their career. The program consists of four workshops: career planning, professional appearance, professional etiquette, and the job campaign.

Additional workshops will be offered this semester. Check the Student Professional Development Program website for a schedule of future workshops.
