The most fundamental change in business education today is the reorientation from a “techniques-based curriculum” to what can be characterized as a “competencies-based curriculum.” In the former, technical knowledge and proficiencies are viewed as the primary educational objectives. In the latter, a broad, core set of educational competencies is identified as the primary objective of the course curriculum (Herring & Williams, 2000). Such a reorientation is thought to provide long-term value to the student (and society), support life-long learning, and provide enhanced career opportunities for future business professionals.
