What is PSDP?
The Department of Management believes strongly in providing opportunities and experiences to complement and enhance the material learned through coursework. To this end, we have created the Professional Skills Development Program. PSDP has been designed to encourage skill development in students beginning in the 2nd year, and continuing through the final year of study, in a number of competency areas. Your participation in PSDP events will be tracked, and your efforts will be officially recognized so that you can be rewarded for your co-curricular activities.

How do I participate in PSDP?
Events offered by our on-campus partners will have separate registration protocols. Your attendance at events offered outside the Department of Management will be recorded and reported to the Department for the purposes of the PSDP program. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that s/he is registered for each event, and that his/her attendance at the event has been recorded.

Business students are keenly aware of the need to be competitive in the market place. However, with the many options available, it is sometimes difficult to figure out where to start or what to do next. Career Track is a comprehensive on-line tool tailored to the needs of business students at UTM. It details from first year through to fourth year, the critical issues to be considered and the accompanying opportunities available. It details some well and some not as well known offerings such as career counseling, job fairs, internships, networking opportunities, job shadowing, work experience and many, many others.
Having trouble communicating effectively with a recruiter? How about figuring out your short term or long term career goals?
FASTrack is back again as part of the PSDP program and it's better than ever! Featuring five interactive workshops led by renowned professional speakers, the FASTrack program enables the student community to gain valuable soft skills, which are essential components in today's competitive working environment. Every business professional is successful by virtue of their soft skills, complementing the hard skills that a university education imparts.
Students that participate in all of the sessions will not only become members of the exclusive Director's Circle and receive a certificate of recognition, but they will also be invited to a reception with faculty, alumni and industry representatives. The reception will take place on March 28, 2013.
All FASTrack seminars will be held on Thursdays from 12 - 2 pm. The dress code for all sessions is business casual. Be sure to mark the following dates in your calendar!
