The program will help participants develop key business skills to make them fully career ready on graduation. Through a series of seminars and other special events on campus, participants will hone their critical thinking and communication, skills.
The program is designed to run in parallel with participants’ degree programs. It will involve regular meetings as part of a one or two unit course that can be used as a restricted elective within their program. All books and materials are provided to participants at no-cost. All participants will also be equipped with an iPad2. The iPad is an important learning tool that will support them in their studies.
The program will give participants a valuable addition to their resume and provide an impressive element in their ePortfolio to share with prospective employers as they seek internships and those vital first career openings.
