- Faculty & Staff
1. As part of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation process, the faculty of the department of Business Administration developed course objectives for all courses. These objectives are based on the five student learning outcome areas identified by the department:
2. Faculty organize their courses and other student experiences in ways that contribute to their students acquiring the skills and knowledge listed above.
3. At the end of each semester teaching faculty member submits a portfolio, including student work, that illustrates the learning activities that took place in the course. Assessment committees are formed to review the student work using rubrics to evaluate the extent to which each learning outcome is achieved. In addition to the portfolio review, the department collects assessment data from and about their students in a variety of other ways:
4. The reports of the assessment committees are sent to the curriculum committee so that the assessment results are used to inform decision-making and action. The data from the other assessments is used to inform both curricular as well as program changes.
