Competency-Based Career Paths
“Suitable Featured in BizEd Magazine’s ‘Tools of the Trade’”
PITTSBURGH—Suitable was highlighted in BizEd Magazine’s latest edition as a “Tool of the Trade” for helping business schools to engage their students in competency-building activities, outside the classroom. BizEd Magazine, published by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), is the leading publication for business education professionals in the world. The “Tools of the Trade” section shares useful technology for higher education professionals to introduce into their schools.
The article, “Competency-Based Career Paths,” featured in BizEd’s January/February issue, explained the team’s transition as undergraduate students who wanted their university to focus on their outside the classroom success to the brains behind the software that does just that. Dr. Audrey Murrell, the Associate Dean at Pitt Business, where Suitable debuted its first pilot program, is steadfast in her commitment to give students the tools they need to succeed in their outside the classroom pursuits.
“[Suitable] provides a web and mobile interface where students can keep track of their level of completion across each competency, share their progress via social media outlets, and produce a summary that can be shared with recruiters,” shared Dr. Audrey Murrell, Associate Dean at the University of Pittsburgh College of Business Administration. Dr. Murrell went on to call Suitable an “invaluable” tool.
Suitable looks forward to rolling out programs with more schools to help students build professional skills outside the classroom, allow administration to track their students’ engagement outside the classroom, and increase engagement with corporate partners.
