Critical Thinking: Applying Marketing Theories and Framework

Program graduates will be able to apply marketing theories and frameworks to make informed decisions about markets (consumers) and marketing (products, price, promotion, place) to maximize organizational performance.

These first four LOs and the last two are solid and specific--focused directly on the marketing discipline. The other 10 are carry-over, college-wide outcomes (on skilll areas such as communication, ethical reasoning, and IT literacty) were developed years ago. The group should decide if they want to keep some of these--perhaps with modifications specific to marketing, or use only the current marketing LOs.

Another thought about the last two LOs. I believe these are based on the pre-req marketing course. They might not be specific enough for us in assessing learning among matriculants in your major. Just a thought.


Critical Thinking: Conducting Marketing Research

Program graduates will be able to use the marketing research process to define a problem/opportunity, design the research project, collect data, analyze data, and take action.

Program graduates will be able to generate a survey instrument, know how and when to apply statistical techniques (t-tests, cross tabs/chi square, ANOVA, correlation, and regression), and conduct conjoint analysis.

i suggest separating the skills of survey design from the statistical techniques used to analyze survey data, but that's of course up to the group.
