Professional Development Courses

As undergraduates in the College of Business, all students are required to take a set of three consecutive courses that work to build students that are prepared and well-rounded for their career search. In addition to building professional development skills and polished materials, these courses are also largely graded on student involvement in Professional Development and club events. This participation helps to build resume experiences, networking skills and connections among valuable prospective employers.
