The Graduate and Professional Student Professional Development (GPSPD) team is hosting a series of workshops in the fall on various topics related to your professional development.
Managing the Rigors of Graduate and Professional Studies
Bill Peterson, Haslam College of Business
Thursday, September 28, 5–6:30pm (Virtual)
Whether you are a graduate or professional student for the first time or returning after several years of being out of school, it can be intimidating to plan and manage the rigors of graduate and professional studies. Instead of the usual “time management” approach, our presenter will introduce you to a unique process strategy, thinking proactively to help you visually organize and optimize your work productivity. This process, known as the Lean Applied to Business Process, can be applied toward achieving your educational goals as well as your chosen career.
