The Professional Development Program (PDP) prepares students for a successful college-to-career transition. Developed for students within the Hankamer School of Business, the PDP is a student-run program with a series of events designed to facilitate learning opportunities for students outside of the classroom. Students enhance their understanding of different fields and build a solid understanding of different career opportunities.
