Assurance of Learning

The Warrington College of Business has a robust assurance of learning (AoL) program. The AACSB standards for AoL have two foundational goals: accountability and continuous improvement. The specific language of the standard is as follows: “The school uses a well documented, systematic process to develop, monitor, evaluate, and revise the substance and delivery of the curricula of degree programs and assesses the impact of the curricula on learning.”

AACSB requires that faculty have “ownership of, and a deep involvement in” the process of assuring that students in our programs are learning. Additional constituents influence the College’s AoL process, including students, alumni, advisory boards, and employers. Data collected through this process is analyzed by program committees and used to fuel conversations on continuous improvement.

Each of the College’s thirteen degree programs has a clearly defined plan for monitoring learning objectives. The faculty lead assigned to each degree program has the primary responsibility to ensure that the review process is implemented.
