The Manning School of Business

Assurance of Learning Center for The Robert J. Manning School of Business

Learning that works!

The purpose of The Robert J. Manning School of Business Assurance of Learning Center is to support and improve student learning by:

  • Communicating to our students the goals and objectives of the undergraduate and graduate programs.
  • Publicizing the process and approach toward the achievement of those goals.
  • Raising student awareness of the importance and value of deep learning.

Assurance of Learning Philosophy

The Manning School of Business' Assurance of Learning effort focuses on “program–level” rather than “course-level” assessments of student learning. The fundamental expectation at the core of our program is that our graduates will acquire what is thought of as “deep learning.” 

Deep learning is acquired knowledge that students are able to apply beyond the final exam. This type of educational experience makes graduates more marketable and valuable to an employer.
