The Sprott Employability Passport (Business Career Preparation Requirement) is a four-year career development program that equips Sprott School of Business students with the job-ready skills and awareness to find meaningful employment and career success. This program complements the academic knowledge and skills gained through Sprott’s undergraduate business degree programs.
There are no classes, tutorial, tests or exams in this course. The Employability Passport Coordinator has office hours available on Monday afternoons where you can schedule a virtual “General Enquiries” appointment to ask questions or get support.
Each year, students are required to register in a non-credit career development course and participate in a selection of co-curricular activities and events covering several of the Employability Passport’s eight skill areas: Career Management, Communications, Global Perspective, Leadership, Professionalism, Teamwork, Technology and Good Business.
For Bachelor of International Business students, there are nine skill areas: Career Management, Communications, Global Perspective, Leadership, Professionalism, Teamwork, Technology, Good Business and Wellness.
Students take an active role in tailoring their Employability Passport based on personal and professional goals, with the guidance of Sprott’s Business Career Management Centre and other campus service providers.
All Bachelor of Commerce students as well as International Business Students admitted in Fall 2022 must satisfactorily complete the Employability Passport Program, as a graduation requirement.
