Professional Development (PD) Program

The Professional Development (PD) Program is a distinctive four-year, co-curricular requirement which prepares every student for long term success in this competitive job market. Your PD requirement is based on when you first entered Geneseo, not when you were accepted to the School of Business.

For more information, visit the Professional Development Events page.

Missing Events: If you think an event is missing, provide the name and date of the event you attended that is missing to the School of Business secretary. Please do not email and ask about missing events - you need to bring the information to South Hall 100 in person. If you do not have the name and/or date, we probably can't track it down. Remember that only events with a scantron sheet at the end were sanctioned. If you completed the form in pen, or did not include a correct ID number or CRN for the event, you probably did not get credit for the event.
