The Professional Development Series (PDS) at the Dolan School of Business is designed to provide a structured way in which students can gain the knowledge and skills that will complement their coursework to help them find success in the working world.
This comprehensive program will give Dolan School of Business undergraduates a competitive edge as they enter a challenging job market. The program is optional, but highly encouraged for all business students.
The program consists of four levels, meant to coincide with a student’s four years at Fairfield University. Students may, however, opt to start or progress in the program at a speed that is comfortable for them. The objectives are meant to build upon one another, but do not necessarily have to be done in consecutive order.
