The School of Management’s academic programs deliver both classroom and real life learning experiences. To complement these educational opportunities, the school’s Professional Enrichment platform offers co-curricular activities during which our students meet and network with area specialists; learn from business leaders; and attend various seminars and forums that deal with professional readiness and/or current work-related issues.
Recommended Involvement: All students and alumni, as well as other stakeholders of the school, are invited to attend and participate in professional enrichment activities. Students should consult with their academic advisor in order to better understand the contribution of the Professional Enrichment platform towards the partial fulfillment of their academic degree program. All School of Management students are strongly encouraged to attend professional enrichment activities to further their own professional goals and development.
Earning Professional Enrichment Points: Students earn enrichment points through their involvement in scheduled activities.A maximum of four enrichment points may be earned for activities outside of the University. Email Dr Cohn at firstname.lastname@example.org for information regarding documentation and substantiation. All enrichment activities earn one enrichment point unless otherwise noted. Students are required to bring their ID cards to each event in order to have their attendance recorded.
Students enrolling in School of Management of BSBA programs as of the Fall 2011 are required to complete the Professional Enrichment Capstone course, which includes participation in a minimum of 16 seminars over the course of their 4 years on campus. All School of Management students are strongly encouraged to exceed the minimum number of sessions and activities to further their own professional goals and development. One point is given for each Professional Enrichment activity attended. Students are required to bring their NYIT ID card to each activity for attendance.
