Building Your Business Portfolio
Academic coursework alone is inadequate preparation for a successful career in business. As a result, the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration has instituted the Building Your Business Portfolio program. The goal of the program is to give students the opportunity to get more connected and involved both on and off campus, to become more marketable post-graduation through acquiring additional business credentials, skills and knowledge, and to gain a more fulfilling university experience. Successful completion of the Building Your Business Portfolio program is a requirement for graduation within the Wall College.
As part of the program, students are required to attend Professional Development Activities (PDAs). Each semester, the Wall Center for Excellence establishes a calendar of approved PDAs available to students. These activities include professional development workshops that help students develop and improve specific skills, such as time management skills, delivering effective presentations, resume writing and behavior-based interviewing techniques. A variety of additional activities may be offered including guest speakers and field experiences. While some of the PDAs are useful to all Wall College students, other PDAs are targeted to students with more specific career interests. Consequently, students have the flexibility to select PDAs that are specific to their interests, and may also request that alternative activities or events be included as a PDA by petitioning the Wall Center for Excellence and showing relevance of the activity/event.
