Academic & Professional Development

Building Success in Graduate School and Beyond

No matter what your career plans are, your graduate school experience must encompass more than just coursework, research, presentations, and publications. The Graduate School provides programs, resources, and events to help you with every step along the way—from identifying potential career paths, to developing skills to compete for them, to managing your career.

In addition to providing direct services (such as workshops and speakers), the Graduate School serves as a gateway to programming and resources across campus, partnering with several University offices to provide opportunities to acquire key transferable skills.

Academic and professional development (APD) is not one workshop or one course; it is something you do throughout your time at the University of Minnesota. So get started now.
