What is the Assurance of Learning?
The AACSB, the accrediting organization of business schools, has initiated a requirement that all accredited schools measure the outcomes of their programs to assure that the schools are meeting their educational goals. UIC Liautaud has developed an assessment center culminating in a case competition. Students who entered their graduate business program in Spring 2012 or earlier are eligible to participate in the event on September 15.
Liautaud MBA Alumna, Elizabeth (Liz) Weidenaar, reflects on her experience as a judge for the Spring 2012 Assurance of Learning event. Click below to watch the video:
