The Faculty of Management Student Professional Development Program (PDP) is a valuable and exciting initiative that provides students with opportunities for professional and personal development.
Through PDP, you'll participate in events that engage you in your area of professional study, and your enhanced knowledge and self-awareness will give you a competitive edge as you enter the work force.
The PDP provides benefit to students in four ways:
The program is available at no cost to students on all three campuses (Lethbridge, Calgary and Edmonton) and you'll be able to participate in the program from your first year.
Your career starts today!

Peruse a list of events not sponsored by the Faculty of Management that are still eligible for professional development funding.
In addition to all the valuable experiences you'll acquire through the Professional Development Program, you may find additional PD opportunities for growth and learning outside of the program.
The Faculty has established a Professional Development Fund to provide financial support to enable you to participate in activities that will add value to your post-secondary experience.
Approved activities may include academic competitions or active involvement at conferences.
You must be a Management student in good standing on any U of L campus, and you are eligible for a one-time funding of up to $2,000 (depending on number of applicants selected for funding).
To ensure the best chance of receiving support funding, please apply as soon as you choose an event.
