Career Action Program
The Career Action Program (CAP) is the CSPD’s signature professional development program, which offers 17 hours of professional development to business students.
In partnership with the our academic faculty, CAP is available to students who have completed or are currently enrolled in the required business course, MGT 3003 Business Communication and Professional Development.
Since its inception, more than 3,200 business undergraduates have completed the program, with many receiving job and internship offers while in the CAP program.
CAP provides students with the knowledge and experience to give them a competitive edge, by connecting academic learning, experiences and professional development.
