Students often say they wish they could get academic credit for their professional development, and sometimes a wish comes true! The Professional Readiness Program guarantees that all business majors are introduced to the basic expectations of their future employers, but that's just the beginning.
You can take advantage of University Electives to add some real expertise in areas that employers value. This Fall, for example, you could take academic courses in writing and communication skills:
English 4775/5775: Applied Writing: Technical Communication
Communication 2255: Public Speaking
Communication 3155: Business and Professional Oral Communication
Communication 4333: Communication and Conflict Management
Or, think about a little more expertise in a language (or even adding another language!). How about boosting your own creativity with a class in the arts? Employers greatly value the critical thinking skills that are developed in history and philosophy courses.
You're already going to show credit for the Professional Readiness Program on your transcript, but think how much more you could add with some carefully chosen academic courses as well!
