The Center for Professional Development at Dartmouth College announced the launch of an innovative “Professional Development Accelerator” aimed to provide Dartmouth students with critical skills and experiences to round out their academic and personal development, better preparing them for today’s careers.
At a dinner for students on September 26, 2013 in Hanover, New Hampshire, the Dartmouth Center for Professional Development also shared that students are participating in an SAP Student Design Thinking Jam as key input to designing and implementing the Professional Development Accelerator.
John Baxter, SAP University Alliances Program Manager, will lead a day long Design Thinking Jam scheduled for October 5, 2013. Students will learn how organizations imagine, create, and innovate with Design Thinking. Then they will compete to design the optimum process to accelerate their professional development, incorporating elements such as mentoring, experiential learning, leadership experiences, and software skills to map a process to enhance their readiness for today’s careers.
Dartmouth College is a member of the SAP University Alliances program which enables students to learn, apply, and share knowledge and skills such as Design Thinking, enhancing their readiness as future leaders including within the SAP ecosystem.
