Course Profiles

Need help figuring out content priorities for your courses?  Course profiles offer help with content decisions and with how to organize the content over the year. Each profile is part of the overall MBA Research curriculum model that includes:

  • Programs of Study provide the big-picture view, including recommended course offerings (academic and technical) and other information important to developing your business administration program.
  • Course Profiles provide a quick overview of the content for an individual course, including recommendations for sequencing.  (Teaching in a member state? Course Profiles can be accessed free via State's Connection!)
  • Course Guides provide a more in-depth look at each course, including project and activity ideas, etc.  (Each Course Guide contains the same information as the Course Profile - plus much more.)
  • LAP Modules offer in-depth content for individual performance indicators.  Use LAPs as your daily lesson plan and for substantive student materials.
  • Assessment
