1. Approval of minutes from Oct. 15th meeting
2. Discussion – Bus 791 and tools course offerings (Dale): In light of discontinuation of tools courses in the CMBA and evolution of the PMBA, the Graduate Office has advanced the idea of pairing Bus 791 (the intro course) and one of the four tools courses, and also pairing the other 3 tools courses to offer each course in every semester. The pairing would alternate between online and in-person delivery in Appleton, with one tools course being offered each summer. The proposed plan would allow new students the option of online or in-person courses for their first two semesters while taking the 4.5 credits they need for full-time status/financial aid eligibility (see attached grid).
3. Discussion – Response to COB Council questions and concerns regarding recent GPC policy recommendations: admissions criteria for the Graduate Certificate in Business Administration, admission criteria for the MBA Professional program, and course waivers in the MBA Professional program.
4. Discussion – Planning for revisions of learning goals and behavioral objectives in response to faculty feedback.
