Assessment of Learning Outcomes

Learning outcomes for the Carlson School's education abroad programs are aligned with the University of Minnesota's Student Learning and Development Outcomes.  We assess learning outcomes from our short-term and semester-length programs, using the feedback to adjust program design and instruction.

The Institute has integrated cultural learning into all its business curricula abroad.

  • Online cultural learning modules for all short-term education abroad programs
  • An online Global Identity course available to all Carlson School students on semester-length programs abroad
