Most students and professionals are eager to move forward in their life to the new challenges and experiences of a career. This workshop examines how to manage your degree program in order to stay on track academically and how to most effectively use your time while in Graduate School. It will also discuss the skills that will assist you in the timely completion of your degree, as well as the successful management of your future career.
