Rutgers School of Business–Camden
Assurance of Learning (AoL)

AoL Planning Cycle

Assurance of Learning (AoL) refers to the systematic process used to demonstrate that students achieve learning competencies for the programs in which they participate. AoL also includes the processes of identifying competency gaps, then designing and implementing changes to the curriculum and learning experience so that gaps are closed or offset by compensating efforts towards learner success. 

Rutgers School of Business–Camden’s mission and strategic plan includes concerted efforts to deliver a rigorous business curriculum that provides transformative education and leadership development for students. In support of this goal, the school is committed to the assurance of student learning through a comprehensive, meaningful, and ongoing assessment effort that has broad faculty and staff input and support.

The AoL effort includes many individuals and teams including that of the Assurance of Learning and Continuous Improvement Committee.

After notified of a match, students are responsible for providing personal information to the matched executive (e.g., current resume and cover letter with information on career ambitions). The information on this application is for internal use only, for us to match you as well as possible with and executive from among our alumni database.

BLDP Application

The Spring 2023 Application is now open! 

Priority will be given to applications received by November 18. Applications are accepted until all seats are filled. Space is limited, so apply early!

The seminar application process is our gateway for entry into the program. Upon acceptance into BLDP, students will be emailed their acceptance letter plus a special permission number allowing registration for the BLDP seminar.

Requirements

Seminar applications are solicited each semester and require the following:

  1. Completed application form (at the bottom of this page),
  2. For students with GPA 3.0 – 3.49, two (2) letters of recommendation (one academic; one other)

Rutgers-Camden students are invited to apply to apply for enrollment in the BLDP seminar. All applicants are expected to meet both of the following selection criteria:  (1) have sophomore standing or above and (2) have an overall GPA of 3.0 or above. First-semester transfer students will be evaluated based on their GPA earned at Rutgers. Students who fail to meet these admission criteria may still be allowed to apply for (and possibly enroll in) the BLDP seminar, but they will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

The director balances evaluations to make final decisions on people accepted for the seminar (up to a maximum of 15-20 each semester).

Students who are admitted to the BDLP are required to adopt the BLDP Code of Conduct. A signed contract is required from each student.

Students may count activities toward “leadership units” that were initiated prior to taking a seminar, as long as those activities occured primarily during their enrollment in their academic program.

Application for Admission to BLDP Seminar

Applications for the BLDP Seminar will be ongoing until class is filled.
