Fogelman Promise Initiatives
The Avron B. Fogelman Professional Development Center
 
Through the support of entrepreneur and business leader, Avron  B. Fogelman, a Professional Development Program has been implemented to help students develop a competitive edge in today’s dynamic workplace.  These programs are designed to complete the academic program that students earn in the classroom and help them make the transition into the business world.
 
Our full program includes several initiatives.  If you successfully complete four required sessions, you will receive a Certificate of Professional Development.  Employers value this certificate and know that you have invested in learning about the important skills that will help you succeed in today’s business world.
 
Our Professional Development Program includes:    
  • Professionalism First!
  • Business Etiquette
  • Fogelman Fit
  • Fogelman Feeds
  • Toastmasters
    (These sessions require registration during the fall or spring semester)

  • Know Good—Do Good—Thrive (offered during regular classes)
  • The 4 C’s—Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking, and Emotional Control
    (offered during regular classes)

All FCBE students receive the last two initiatives as part of our regular curriculum.  To receive the Professional Development Certificate, you only have to register for and complete 4 of the remaining initiatives.
 
For more information on the Professional Development Center and how to register for any of the above initiatives, contact Cayla Cook or visit room 274 in the Fogelman College of Business and Economics.
