The PPC consists of each student presenting his or her portfolio to a professional industry panel, who will then offer valuable verbal and written feedback. The panel evaluates each student’s portfolio and presentation based on overall organization, knowledge of the concentration, communication skills and professionalism, enthusiasm and energy, readiness for a professional interview, and greatest strengths and weaknesses.
