Graduate Studies and Policies (GS&PC)
The committee will review proposed courses and programs for Pamplin, as well as overseeing faculty teaching reviews, as necessary, and the Assurance of Learning process for all Pamplin’s non-research graduate degrees (i.e., MBA (all formats), MSBA, and MACIS). Special charges for this year include:
- Continuing the committee’s work on the proposed MS in Business Analytics. The Dean would like a summary of the committee’s work from last year, as well a recommendation of how to proceed, by the end of September. Options for proceeding include:
- moving forward to propose a new degree program for consideration by SCHEV,
- considering an implementation of the existing MSBA-BA degree program in a format that would work for part-time students in the National Capital Region (NCR), or
- deciding that the market or niche no longer exists and a Business Analytics degree should not be considered for the NCR at this time.
- Considering MBA-level Graduate Certificates. These certificates would combine courses already in existence for the Evening MBA program into shorter, focused areas of expertise (e.g., analytics, cybersecurity). Students would be encouraged to take these as stand-alone certificates, or as a pre-cursor to admittance as an ongoing MBA student.
