Professional Development Passport Program

The Kania School of Management Professional Development Passport Program

The Kania School of Management Professional Development Passport Program is to provide students with essential events in career building and networking to match their Jesuit education. This allows students to become familiar with professional development in many ways including: resume building, interviewing skills and preparation, job searching techniques, social media responsibilities, and other opportunities in career development. The program sets expectations for student participation and provides a consistent degree of training and preparation to give students an edge in career preparation and professional development. Events, workshops, lectures and activities given by alumni, business professionals, staff and faculty touch on various topics that relate to the students' professional development. Student participation is recorded and applied to their professional development profile.
