Undergraduate Business Courses
The Undergraduate program has specific learning goals and objectives that are imbedded in the curriculum. These learning outcomes are fostered throughout the undergraduate experience, particularly in the core courses. The learning goals are measured by direct and indirect means that include course assignments, exams, projects, surveys and evaluations. The learning outcomes for Haas School of Business Undergraduate Program are listed here.
