The School of Management's TEMPOS campaign statement assures its Stakeholders that academic programs and activities are Career Oriented. This career orientation is the O specification in the TEMPOS campaign statement. In keeping with this aspiration, the school utilizes both its Executive Council and Business Advisory Board to inform decisions on curriculum and other matters, and also to reference decisions on curricular matters. Specifically:
The Executive Council engages into numerous strategic decisions that inform curriculum. For example, the Council provides input on program mission and associated programmatic learning goals. The Council also references program elements against accreditation standards, and provides inputs on the degree of relevance for curricular initiatives with respect to the evolving business environment. The Council also hears from the directors of the School's professional enrichment, experiential education, and student advancement programs, as well as its centers of Excellence. In this sense the Council provides strategic direction to these platforms, and offers constructive criticism for the purpose of maximizing the relevancy of these mission-advancing platforms.
The Business Advisory Board provides inputs on major-specific learning goals and the associated courses. The Board also references course-level learning goals for relevance to the business environment, the degree of alignment between learning outcomes and the course-level learning goals, and degree of attainment of the course-level learning goals through a review of sample student learning outcomes. This review provides an alternative assessment of the quality of curriculum and learning outcomes that can be contrasted to the metric/score-based direct assessments that derive from the assurance of learning process. Moreover, the diversity of the Board is an asset towards delivering a significant cross-section of inputs from which the school can ensure that its scope of program coverage reflects a broad-based consistency.
