The Career Planning & Development Center assists individuals with exploring and defining their personal career goals while developing the skills and confidence necessary to succeed.

Right Management’s virtual career preparation and coaching program will provide graduate students with a foundation in career management.

All Webster University students worldwide enrolled in a graduate degree program through the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology can gain access to virtual career preparation and one-on-one career coaching. The initiative will be delivered in partnership with Right Management, a global leader in talent and career management solutions.

The school will pilot the graduate career development program as an elective during the Spring I and Spring II terms of the current academic year, and roll it out for all graduate students beginning in June 2015.

“Whether our students want to begin, advance or change careers, this new professional development program will equip them with the tools and resources they need to proactively manage their careers and achieve their goals,” said Benjamin Akande, dean of the Walker School. “Professional development and career preparation training are essential in today’s highly-competitive job market, and we’re excited to partner with Right Management on this innovative, career-focused initiative.”

The career management program is designed to provide graduate students with a foundation in career management; from self-assessments to personal branding, career action planning and more. Students will also gain access to individualized career coaching from an expert career coach provided by Right Management.

More than 11,000 students are enrolled in graduate business, management and computer science programs at the Walker School. These degree programs are offered at Webster University campuses across the United States, Europe, Africa and Asia, as well as delivered online.

Additional details about the new career management program will be shared in the coming weeks.
