Personal Roadmap to Ongoing Success (PROS)
Beginning in Fall 2016, all students graduating with a bachelor’s degree related to business administration within the Mike Cottrell College of Business will be required to participate in the Personal Roadmap to Ongoing Success (PROS) Professional Development Program. Beginning in their sophomore year, students will participate in a series of opportunities to gain experience for their resumes and build professional connections all in an effort to prepare them for their careers upon graduation.
What does PROS involve?
PROS participation will begin during the student’s sophomore year, requiring students to explore professionalism, investigate business majors available through the Mike Cottrell College of Business and determine their career direction through two introductory seminars. In their junior year, students will participate in activities to gain exposure to business leaders and gain a better understanding of the business world. During a student’s senior year, students will build upon their experiences in college thus far and begin to practice leadership, communication and networking skills through internships, job shadowing and speed interviews.
How much time will it take?
The PROS program is a 3-step process and each step should be completed during the preferred timeframe (sophomore, junior and senior years). However, all requirements of the PROS program must be completed prior to graduation.
How do I register for PROS?
All undergraduate degree-seeking students within the Mike Cottrell College of Business will be automatically registered in the programming beginning in their sophomore year.
How do I know when events will occur?
Dates for all PROS events will be available on OrgSync.
Who keeps up with where I am in the process?
It is the student’s responsibility to keep up with their status. However, detailed records will be kept should a student have questions regarding their status.
