Join us at our Professional Development Program (PDP) Events

Students, alumni, and industry professionals help to shape each semester’s offerings, and events are very popular and well attended. We are committed to bringing more business leaders, industry experts, and influencers to campus to discuss the latest issues and trends. Over the past three years, PDP has held more than 30 events at both New Jersey campuses.

Videos of past events are posted on the Silberman YouTube channel.

Accessing PDP

Silberman College of Business has partnered with the application Suitable to launch our PDP program. Using Suitable, students can earn PDP certifications to later include on their resumes and LinkedIn profiles. Earning these certifications is a great way to demonstrate to employers what you’ve learned, your growth professionally, and that you go above and beyond.

Accessing PDP via your Desktop: Log onto Suitable at https://app.suitable.co. Log in with your FDU credentials and you’re in!

Accessing PDP via Mobile phone: You can access PDP on your mobile device by downloading the Suitable app from the Apple Store (link) or from the Google Play Store (link). Log in with your FDU NetID email and FDU credentials to access PDP!
