Our Mission:

The Center for Student Professional Development (CSPD) is a comprehensive College of Business resource focused on supporting students’ successful matriculation through college and preparing them for entry into the professional business environment. This is accomplished through various career preparation workshops, networking sessions,  mentoring and experiential opportunities, such as internships, that complement the content knowledge and tools taught in the classroom and help students develop a professional portfolio of skills and behavioral attributes that are sought by employers.

Our Goals:

  • To ensure that students matriculating through the challenging College of Business curricula and programs develop a balanced portfolio of skills - academic, communications, technical, interpersonal, career readiness, critical thinking and leadership.
  • To encourage students to continuously enhance their skills, business sophistication and other behavioral competencies during and after their college matriculation.
  • To assist students in defining and managing their personal/professional brand.
  • To cultivate relationships with alumni and industry resulting in mentoring opportunities for students and, in collaboration with Career Services, provide internship and full-time career opportunities for students.
