Professional Development Programs
Stern supports the professional development of students through the following programs:
- Industry Introduction Series (IIS) - IIS is a 15-week, full academic year workshop series that provides freshmen, sophomores, and juniors with critical resources for professional development and presents an in-depth look at a different industry each week through speakers from leading companies, Stern alumni working in the industry, current Stern seniors who have interned in the industry and Stern faculty.
- Professional Development Series (PDS) - PDS is a semester-long series that introduces students to the essential personal and professional skills that are necessary to compete for internships and full-time jobs. Students will learn how to develop a personal brand, how to convey their personal brand in a resume and interview, how to be a professional, and how to network.
- Case Competition Series (CCS) - CCS provides sophomores and juniors with an opportunity to apply their knowledge in the development of a solution for a real world business problem. Each case describes a business problem or situation, and students receive a sound theoretical and practical foundation to approach the case.
- Juniors: Alumni Career Engagement (ACE) - ACE provides juniors with personalized career guidance from alumni on topics such as resumes, cover letters, interviewing strategies and careers.
