Professional Development

ECS3 Logo

The purpose of ECS³ Program (Excellence in Career Success) is to support all Jonsson School students with their Career & Professional Development. The focus is on educating and preparing students to gain the skills necessary for career success.

The program will include a yearly professional development plan of action with clear steps that students will complete and master alongside their academic programs. The program will serve both the undergraduate students and the graduate students.

The ECS³ Etiquette Dinner will be hosted in December annually, and will recognize students that have successfully completed the requirements for the program with either a Novice, Intermediate, or Advance level of Distinction in Professional Development. We will also recognize the ECS faculty members, advisors, staff, employers, and council members that have been an integral part of the student’s career journey (nominated and voted on by students).
