The George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology has announced a new course focused on preparing students to successfully navigate the worst employment environment since the Great Depression. Open to all students at Webster University, MNGT 3100: Issues in Management: Walker EDGE Professional Development, is a new three credit-hour course focused on providing strategic professional preparation and a hands-on approach to conduct a successful job search. Through an intensive classroom experience, mock interviews and other aspects of professional development, students will become familiar with the current job market, personal branding, resume and cover letter preparation, pre-interview research, interviewing skills, networking, internship opportunities and much more.
“This is a must-take course for our students because it offers a deep preparation to explore and define career goals that will enable their transformation from college to the workplace,” said Benjamin Akande, Dean of the Walker School. “And in the Post-Great Recession Era, having these tools is a necessity.”
Two sections of MNGT 3100: Issues in Management: Walker EDGE Professional Development will be offered in spring 2014.
Spring Semester, Section 10
Spring Term II – Section 03
Students can register for the course through Connections (under the student tab, “Student Academic Services” Channel). Space is limited, so students are encouraged to register early.
