Assurance of Learning @ COB

Assurance of Learning Standard (AOL)

Assurance of Learning (AOL) is one of the most important standards required by AACSB.

In Standard 8: “The School uses well-documented, systematic processes for determining and revising degree program learning goals; designing, delivering, and improving degree program curricula to achieve learning goals; and demonstrating the degree program learning goals have been met.”

Our vision is to provide a benchmark for Business schools to compare and evaluate student learning effectiveness. Currently, the College of Business Administration at CSULB leads an effort to develop a capstone knowledge test for undergraduate students in California.

COB Learning Goals

Program learning goals are developed and determined by COB Undergraduate Program Committee (UPC) and COB Graduate Program Committee (GPC). Learning goals are constantly reviewed by UPC and GPC to assure that they are consistent with the school’s mission, expected outcomes, and strategies. Learning goals should reflect the currency of knowledge and the expectations of stakeholders.
