If you consistently participate in Professional Skills Development Program (PSDP) activities throughout your UTMM Commerce or BBA/Management studies, you can earn this notation on your official University of Toronto transcript:
“Completion of the Professional Skills Development Program in Management.”
How it works
PSDP is built on these six categories, Know Yourself, Industry Research, Academic Development, Develop Skills, Build Relationships, Job Search. (PSDP also offers alternate categories for events. See instructions on your application.)
To receive a transcript notation, you must earn a total of at least 46 PSDP skill points over three to four years in your academic program.
Points are based on the number of hours spent on each activity, except for all-day events which allocate a maximum of 5. How quickly you earn the transcript notation requirements depends partly on the program offerings in a given year, and your level of commitment.
After completing the required 46 credit hours, you are evaluated through a two‐step process. First, you submit a 500-word report which describes and reflects on what you learned, participating in PSDP. Your report must address each of the 6 categories, with specific examples of how participation impacted your development, and how you could take that learning forward.
Next, you undergo an interview about your written submission and any relevant aspects of your PSDP participation. Interviewers use a standardized list of interview questions they may tailor to your individual experience, based on your report.
When you successfully complete the report and interview, your name is forwarded for the academic transcript notation.
