MBA Research National Business Administration Standards are the starting point for students’ academic and career success.
Standards are broadly-based knowledge and skill statements that identify what students should know and be able to do as a result of instruction.
We focus our research, curriculum and instructional materials design, and assessment activities on four business-related clusters:
• Business Management
• Hospitality and Tourism Management
Our research efforts incorporate both primary and secondary research based on business sources rather than educational sources. Business-based research provides a mechanism for the identification of current, actual skills and knowledge needed by employees in the workplace.
They set the stage for program quality, guide course development, instructional materials selection, student organization participation, and assessment. MBA Research provides free standards and performance indicators for use in high schools and community colleges nationwide.
Because of our engagement and research with business professionals and organizations throughout the country, these standards are unique in education.
Our continuous research process utilizes focus groups, interviews, business association standards, surveys, and certification criteria. This research and development process is what allows us to deliver standards that provide current information on the skill sets being used in the workforce today.
