The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), with funding from the Lumina Foundation, has prepared a case study about Brandman University’s Bachelor of Business Administration competency-based program, or CBE as it’s known around the university.

The study provides a program snapshot and a discussion of how competency-based programs have been developed elsewhere. Brandman’s approach differed by taking a framework approach that looked first at what students should be able to do, know and understand upon graduation. Other competency-based university programs have been built as add-ons to existing degree programs.

The study quotes Laurie Dodge, vice chancellor of institutional assessment and planning: “Assessment, or student demonstration of mastery is at the heart of competency-based education.”

The 13-page report also looks at how the degree program is structured, outlines the assessment approach as well as looking at the platform developed in conjunction with sagence Learning and the pricing and total cost of the program.
