The MU Graduate School is committed to aiding the holistic development of graduate students by providing comprehensive in-person and online professional development resources, often in collaboration with campus partners. Our priorities of assisting with goal setting, skill building, leadership development, and career preparedness are designed for graduate students across all disciplines.

Professional development efforts align with one or more of the eight categories identified by MU Graduate School as essential transferable skills. Through engagement in our professional development program, students are empowered to transition into their chosen profession with confidence.
