Professional Development Events (PD Events) 2015-2016

Professional Development Events are held to support the continued professional growth of School of business students.  PD Events cover specific topics that relate to young professionals, but are not necessarily topics that are covered in the classroom.  Some examples include networking, resume and cover letter writing, interviewing techniques, interpersonal skills in the workplace, and diversity in the workplace. School of Business students are required to participate in and complete a minimum of twelve (12) professional development events as a graduation requirement.  For more information see the Professional Development Requirement page.
