The integration of these learning goals in curricula of programs with a business focus is an integral part of the teaching- and learning concept at MCI.

MCI’s learning goals clearly define what students will

  • know
  • understand and
  • what competencies they will have

after having completed a program at MCI.

The transfer of learning is facilitated through effective instructional design, by fostering students’ engagement, and by clearly articulated course syllabi as well as purposefully designed assignments and exams.

The achievement of cross-curricular program goals is tested regularly. Through this, MCI ensures that students actually achieve the benefits inherent in these learning goals.
