IEOR Policy on Career Engagement

Student engagement, participation and enrollment in the IEOR Professional Development course are required in order to participate in the Department's recruiting program. Lack of career preparation and development will lead to serious issues in fulfilling professional goals. Non-enrollment and absence from the class are signs to the Department that the student is not interested in recruiting and career development.
