Professional Skill BootCamp (MSB001)

At the start of the master’s program, students will have an opportunity to attend a BootCamp (in week 34). During the BootCamp, students will participate in sessions designed to set them up for successful completion of their master’s degree and learn essential skills for today’s work life—how to negotiate like a professional, how to bring the best out of teams, and how to improve your professional writing. Students earn a certificate for each completed session, and a list of earned certificates during the program will be attached to the transcript.
