Mapping Industry Standards In Undergraduate Business Education, Margaret Phillips, Heather Howard, Alyson Vaaler, David Hubbard Jun 2019

Mapping Industry Standards In Undergraduate Business Education, Margaret Phillips, Heather Howard, Alyson Vaaler, David Hubbard

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

Industry standards have a significant impact on business as a means to eliminate waste, reduce costs, market products (e.g., for quality, safety, interoperability) and lessen liability (Thompson, 2011). Consequently, an understanding and the ability to use standards, agreed upon practices among interested or vested parties, is a critical workplace competency for those engaged in business and industry. To have a workforce competent in the use of standards, higher education curricula must be developed to integrate standards education at appropriate points within the curriculum. Despite the importance of standards, they are not universally integrated into the college and university curricula ...
