Here are some common questions students have about the Professional Skills Development Program:
Who can participate in the PSDP program?
The Professional Skills Development Program (PSDP), is an exclusive offering for Commerce and Management students with the Department of Management at UTM. As of 2016, the Department of Management has allowed 1st year Commerce and Management students to participate in the PSDP offering where registration space is available.
Note: Students that do not get accepted into either Commerce or Management programs will not be able to apply for PSDP Transcript Notation with the Department. The Department will consider PSDP points collected within a students' first year towards the Transcript Notation requirement.
When can I start and complete the PSDP program?
Students can start the PSDP program at any point in their undergraduate career (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or final year). There is no obligation for students to start early, but there are additional benefits of completing the PSDP Transcript Notation Requirement.
Benefits of completing PSDP program early:
Receive your the PSDP Notation on your Official UofT Transcript early while you apply for graduate programs or full-time/part-time employment
Meet the requirements for the Annual IMI Awards with the Department
Focus on certificate program to supplement your professional development experience with the Department
Is there a cost to participate in PSDP programs?
More than 90% of the PSDP program is free of charge to students. The following exceptions include:
Case Competition (RSM - Marketing Conference, Show Me the Green - Sustainability Conference)
Specialized workshop (Marquee Workshop, Dining Etiquette etc...)
