Syllabi Requirements

Please save this memo as it can serve as a permanent copy of the syllabi requirements as per AACSB, Higher Learning Commission (HLC), and our School guidelines.

Syllabi should contain (in an easily discernable format):

A. General Information

  • School of Business Mission Statement – the Web URL is fine as that way you will have the most current mission statement. 
  • Instructor name

B. Course specific information

  • Goals and Objectives for that specific course – please see SOB office if you do not have a copy of the goals and objectives for a course.  Also please give the SOB office any updates to the goals and objectives if they change.
  • Schedule of events by topics not just by Chapters – listing of the schedule of semester events may include the Chapters in the book but MUST include the topics covered (so that AACSB can see coverage of all their perspectives).

  • A statement to the effect that if students are found in the course without the correct prerequisites, then he/she will be administratively withdrawn during the semester unless specific permission has been given
