Mapping: Curriculum and Program Learning Objectives

Mapping--Huntsman School of Business Acumen Courses

The four courses provided by the Department of Economics and Finance that are included in the Huntsman School of Business acumen core (e.g., Econ 1500, Econ 2100, Econ 3400, and Finance 3400) each have their own set of learning objectives. These courses are designed to assist students in mastering those course-specific learning objectives.

Mapping--Undergraduate Economics Program

All economics courses that are not in the business acumen have been assessed in terms of how the typical coverage of a specific course maps to the undergraduate economics program learning objectives. Other departmental programs are also mapped relative to learning objectives. For each learning objective, all courses and programs are assigned a ranking of high (H), medium (M), or low (L) depending on whether the course is designed to achieve that objective. This mapping is presented below:

  • ECN 3010 Managerial Economics
