What is the Professional Skills Development Program (PSDP)?

The Department of Management believes strongly in providing opportunities and experiences to complement and enhance the material learned through coursework. 

PSDP is broken down into six categories:

  1. KNOW YOURSELF (4 pts. from this category)
  2. INDUSTRY RESEARCH (6 pts. from this category)
  3. ACADEMIC DEVELOPMENT (10 pts. from this category
  4. DEVELOP SKILLS (15 pts. from this category)
  5. BUILD RELATIONSHIPS (5 pts. from this category)
  6. JOB SEARCH (6 pts. from this category)

Students that complete the 46 PSDP point minimum requirement listed above, can apply for a UofT Transcript Notation.

PSDP Transcript Notation:

Students who consistently take part in PSDP activities throughout their years in the Commerce or BBA/Management  programs will be eligible to receive a notation on their official University of Toronto transcript that reads “Completion of the Professional Skills Development Program in Management”.

How quickly one completes the transcript notation requirements will depend partly on the program offerings in a given year, as well as the level of commitment of the individual student.

CLICK HERE PSDP Transcript Notation Application.

Deadline to submit applications is March 27th, 4pm in dropbox #3 beside KN 206.

For additional details on the program check out PSDP Transcript Notation section or email Linnet Kocheril (linnet.kocheril@utoronto.ca).

Note: This program is exclusive to Commerce and Management students within the Department of Management.

Approved PSDP Events List:

 

PSDP Alternative Category: If you have more than the required number of points in one category but not enough points in another category, you may still qualify for the PSDP Transcript Notation. You may attend the same event in the following year or another date/time and have it meet the requirement for another PSDP category which you may be lacking points in.

If you have attended a "professional development" event not listed on the approved list above with a Department stakeholder, you can request this event to receive PSDP points.

Note: Points from Career Centre events are typically updated at the end of the semester (Fall = December; Winter = March)

PSDP Points Request Form:

Have you attended an event that is not on the PSDP registration website or list of verified PSDP events? But feel that the event should receive PSDP points, submit a PSDP Points Request form for us review.
