Fall 2021 >> BIC Portfolios In Review

By BIC CCNY Posted on 10/14/2021 11:03

The Fall Portfolio Reviews mark a significant turning point in the development of second year portfolios.

Donuts, pizza, and portfolios. Oh, my! This Fall, BIC’s Saturday Portfolio Reviews were back on campus, fueled by food, creativity, and plenty of coffee. Sharing their progress since the Summer, BICsters in the Creative track met in Shepard Hall on Saturday, September 11th and the Management/Planning and PR tracks met the following weekend. The Fall Portfolio Reviews mark a significant turning point in the development of second year portfolios as BICsters from the Class of 2022 drill down on both substance and style.
As a degree requirement, all BIC students must present their BIC portfolio to a panel of high-level professionals during graduation week in late May. Presentations are 25 minutes long: 18 minutes to present with 7 minutes to defend. Final BIC portfolios must demonstrate discipline depth in an integrated framework. 

Management + PR Portfolio Reviews were overseen by BIC Program Director and Professor Nancy R. Tag and Professor Katina Scott. The Creative Portfolio Review was overseen by Professor Gerardo Blumenkrantz. While the Saturday events focused on the Class of 2022, BICsters from the Class of 2023 were also invited to get a glimpse into the portfolio process and get a head start on what is expected of them later in the program. 
BIC portfolios go beyond conventional definitions of a portfolio. They are pushed to be more than just a repository of work but vehicles of innovation + exploration. In addition, BIC portfolios must successfully demonstrate expertise in the 4PS: Product. Process. Personality. Professionalism. To get them on their way, there was a “Mad Lib” style exercise to jumpstart each students’ unique professional positioning, 
Stay tuned to see the finalized BIC Class of 2022’s portfolios next year!
