Curriculum Management System

In order to establish a sound system and a regular process to manage learning and teaching, the College stipulated “Curriculum Management System” in 2005. The Curriculum Management System sets up guidelines and timeline for the programs and the College to review and revise the learning goals, curriculum, and the faculty issue (qualification/sufficiency). Moreover, we incorporate the AOL process into the system to ensure that the major adjustment of curriculum or courses is closely linked to the feedback from AOL process.

Assurance of Learning

The focus of Assurance of Learning (AOL) is on each program. Each program should establish their learning goals for different educational level, design and implement AOL plan, collect and analyze data of students learning outcome, complete AOL outcome report. Program Curriculum Committees should put emphasis on learning outcome improvement policies. The College Curriculum Committee will review each program’s AOL plans and AOL outcome reports to give feedback or suggestions. The following chart illustrates the AOL process.

Implement Human-Centric values

The College of Management endeavors to help students become the intelligent, ethical managers needed by modern society and business. As a member of the International Association of Jesuit Business Schools, “human-centric value” sits among our core values. With this in mind, we promote the importance of serving humankind, while striking a balance between professional knowledge about management and business ethics.

In January 2016, Prof. Li-Fei Chen, Convener of FJCM Teaching Executive Committee, presented a white paper entitled ‘Guidelines of the Fulfillment of Human-Centric Values through Education’ at the Annual Faculty Convention on June 28, 2016, and at the Annual Staff Convention on July 28, 2016. The ideas contained within the white paper have been adopted by faculty and staff: FJCM should promote human-centric value within courses.
