The Career Action Program (CAP) is the CSPD’s signature professional development program, offering 18 hours of interactive professional development and networking sessions to business students.
In partnership with our academic faculty, CAP serves as an integral portion of the curriculum for the required business course, MGT 3003 Business Communication and Professional Development. All students who have previously completed MGT 3003 are also encouraged to participate in a CAP session.
Since its inception, more than 4,300 business undergraduates have completed CAP, with many receiving job and internship offers while in the program.
What is CAP?
- CAP provides students with the knowledge and experience to give them a competitive edge, by connecting academic learning, experiences and professional development.
- CAP offers a comprehensive overview of professional development topics and enhances career awareness for UTSA business students through a series of sessions and workshops where students practice interviewing, making introductions, networking and proper business etiquette techniques.
- Through meaningful interaction with members of the regional corporate community, students will engage in the deliberate practice of skills, create a heightened level of career and industry awareness, develop a behavioral change toward their career search and better understand the importance of digital and interpersonal networking.
