Seminar series focusing on engagement and professional development with a focus on transitioning from University life to the work world. Prerequisites: BSAD 102; Business Administration major; minimum Junior standing.
Dates: June 17 - July 12, 2019
The Professional Development Series was developed to offer GSB students 1 credit, pass/no pass courses which promote engagement in GSB and career/professional preparedness. The intent of the courses is to give students a consistent set of resources, experiences, and opportunities within their curriculum, building throughout the 3 courses from basic building blocks in PDS I to more independent and customized activities in PDS III. PDS III (BSAD202) is offered completely on-line with the primary goal of helping students navigate the campus to career transition, i.e. targeting your job search, growing your professional network, managing personal finances, seeking a mentor, negotiating salaries, choosing benefit packages, and preparing for the workplace environment.
This class is about Student Engagement – Attending UVM or a Business sponsored event is a requirement. Your participation in a variety of online class discussions, one formal assignment and attendance at one UVM or local Business sponsored event will be expected.
