University Programs. Symposium 20. [AHRD Conference, 2001].
This symposium on university programs consists of three presentations. "Institutional and Curricular Characteristics of Leading Graduate Human Resource Development (HRD) Programs in the United States" (K. Peter Kuchinke) reports a study on institutional arrangements, student enrollments, and core curriculum content and found a large degree of heterogeneity among program names, departmental affiliations, and specializations; declining student enrollment; increased part-time course taking; and disparity between course offerings and much current writing in the field. "Assessment of a Graduate Program in HRD: Perceptions of Key Stakeholders" (Julie A. Furst-Bowe, Joseph Benkowski) discusses these findings: overlap among courses; difficulty in providing administrative and student services to students; need for additional staff; lack of quality classrooms and instructional facilities; and quality and level of research and scholarship among faculty and students. "Predicting Academic Performance in Management Education: An Empirical Investigation of Master of Business Administration (MBA) Success" (Baiyin Yang, Xiaoping Rosa Lu) suggests that undergraduate grade point average was the most important predictor for the graduate academic performance, followed by Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) quantitative and GMAT verbal, while language made little contribution. All three papers include substantial bibliographies. (YLB)
