More importantly, the course is designed to help each student develop the critical skills and knowledge needed to successfully manage his or her own career development and work/life integration.
Learning is based on an experiential process in which the student will complete a multi- faceted examination of the evolution of his or her own career. Based on this process, each student will be challenged to identify contemporary talent development and leadership practices, and life themes that will be helpful for clarifying his or her future career goals and direction.
