“The only thing that matters is getting to product/market fit.” - Marc Andreessen Many educational products have flooded the American K-12 market in recent years, launched by startups and established educational institutions alike. Many of these startups will fail, and seasoned entrepreneurs and business strategists suggest that failure results primarily from the inability to access a sizeable market and address the needs of that market with the correct product, what Andreessen calls “product/market fit.” The "Lean Startup” methodology, popularized by entrepreneurs like Steve Blank and Eric Ries, has gained significant popularity as a process for achieving product/market fit. Users of the Lean Startup method articulate all of their assumptions about the market and product and create small and inexpensive tests to validate or invalidate these assumptions. At each round of results of assumption testing, the enterprise has the choice to “pivot, persist, or perish” in the belief that the right pivots will ultimately achieve product/market fit. This capstone details my work as a founder of The Teaching Genome as I pivoted, persisted and avoided perishing. The Teaching Genome is an assessment that can discern the teaching style of a user and a series of tools that use these results to improve teaching and learning. The idea for the Teaching Genome developed at the Harvard Graduate School of Education...

Thesis (Ph. D.)--University of Rochester. Margaret Warner Graduate School of Education and Human Development, 2011.; American medical schools do not have a model approach for teaching and learning medical ethics. The literature on medical ethics instruction identifies the recent revisions to accreditation requirements, which link undergraduate and graduate ethics education, as an opportunity to create a new medical pedagogy. This dissertation develops a theoretical account of “coaching,” a form of instruction that is both critical to medical ethics education and meets the new accreditation requirements. The development of this account of coaching is, in part, conceptual, supported by philosophical methods and the wider literature on coaching in music, athletics, business, and education; and, in part, empirical, stemming from research in particular medical ethics sessions taught in the third year of the University of Rochester Medical School. The method for the empirical portion of the research is qualitative description and relies in part on analytic induction. The data come from analysis of course evaluations, participant observations of the target ethics sessions, field notes following the observations, analysis of audio-recorded participant observations...

Thesis (Ed. D.)--University of Rochester. Margaret Warner Graduate School of Education and Human Development, 2012.; Our nation’s public schools have been given the task of preparing our students for success in college as well as future careers. Determining how to best prepare future teachers is not an easy task, and the current state of public education has had an impact on what it takes to be a successful teacher. Involving pre-service career and technical education (CTE) teachers in research on their student teaching experiences should help them in their student teaching and future teaching careers as well as aid CTE teacher educators in the preparation of future CTE teachers. With those goals in mind, the following two main research questions guided this study: 1. How do pre-service CTE teachers perceive CTE?
2. How can CTE teacher educators support pre-service CTE teachers in negotiating the differing messages regarding CTE?

Four graduate business and marketing education students who completed their student teaching practicum experiences during the fall 2011 semester participated in this study. Using action research, the researcher employed written surveys, individual interviews, group discussions, participant reflection journals...

This thesis is situated within the history of education , linked to the line of Philosophy and History of the Graduate Program in Education of the Federal University of Pelotas Education . His aim was to investigate the trajectory of private education in Pelotas , a city located south of the Rio Grande do Sul, in the period from the late nineteenth century and the beginning of the XXI century. For this , we used as the primary source document printed from private primary and secondary schools , primary and secondary education advertisements, published in the press . The aim of this thesis is to prove that the private schools in Pelotas was hitherto consisting of three cycles . The first began in the second half of the nineteenth century , characterized by the education offered by an owner or by a group of teachers who organized education in a more sophisticated process than existing spare classes in the city . It was an eminently private phase, characterized by a clearly market capitalist system . The second cycle , highlighted by the hegemony of teaching faith that abolished the previous process. At that stage , there was a more effective organization , with tables arranged and trained to work in the teaching profession as a vocation . In addition ...

This action research assesses a framework that assists business educators in promoting leadership within a classroom. It is designed to better prepare students to assume leadership and fill the "leadership gap" in business. Two classes of 2nd-year community college business students participated in running and managing their own business community as teams of sales professionals by developing and practicing their own individual leadership for 28 weeks during their sales courses. The intent was to assess the development of leadership resulting from the implementation of the "Business Leadership in the Classroom" framework. This framework balances leadership principles to simulate a business environment with the practical elements of a learning community under the facilitation of an experienced business educator. The action research approach was used to assess and adjust approaches to business leadership on a continuous basis throughout the research. Data were collected from 61 students based on journals, surveys, peer group reviews, and my (facilitator) reflective journal.The findings reveal that both individual and collective business leadership views and practical skills developed over time. A business leadership mind-set evolved that ranged from a general awareness of the importance of leadership...

This project is a quasi-experimental study involving eight classrooms in two senior elementary schools in St. Catharines, Ontario which received a Project Business Program and were pre- and post-tested to determine the growth of knowledge acquisition in the area of business concepts. Four classrooms received a Project Business treatment while four classrooms acted as a control. The Project Business Program is sponsored by Junior Achievement of Canada; it occurred during a twelveweek period, February to May 1981, and is run by business consultants who, through Action, Dialogue and Career Exploration, teach children about economics and business related topics. The consultants were matched with teacher co-ordinators in whose classrooms they taught and with whom they discussed field trips, students, lesson planning, etc. The statistical analysis of pre- and post-test means revealed a significant statistical growth in the area of knowledge acquisition on the part of those students who received the Project Business Program. This confirms that Project Business makes a difference. A search of the literature appears to advocate economic programs like Project Business, whfch are broadly based, relevant and processoriented. This program recommends itself as a model for other areas of co-operative curricular interactions and as a bridge to future trends and as a result several fruitful areas of research are suggested.

There is a push worldwide in universities to increase employability of students through the development of graduate qualities. This paper explores the extent to which course coordinators within a university coursework business Masters degree incorporate graduate qualities in the design, teaching and assessment of their courses. Student perceptions of their own graduate quality learning and assessment are also investigated. The paper argues that while staff accept the theoretical concept of graduate qualities, in practical terms they are influenced more by discipline demands and personal preferences. A more coordinated and explicit articulation of graduate qualities within courses and across programs is needed so that improved outcomes are achieved and evidenced.; http://www.herdsa.org.au/?page_id=217; Marilyn Clarke and Jane Burdett

MBA Professional Report; Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; MBA Professional Report; Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; The purpose of this Master of Business Administration (MBA) project is to develop a practical marketing plan to attract U.S. Navy Unrestricted Line (URL) officers to the resident Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) Defense-Focused MBA. The intent of this project is to create awareness in the Navy Unrestricted Line community about the benefits of the Defense-focused MBA and to build a brand name for the Naval Postgraduate School MBA (NPS-MBA). The goal is to make the resident NPS-MBA the graduate business school product of choice. The authors believe that the MBA degree provides URL officers the business tools required to become successful managers in the modern naval establishment. The starting point of this project was to conduct a present situation analysis of the MBA degree by determining its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. It was noted that there is a decreasing number of URL officers in the NPS-MBA program since its inception in January 2002. Although graduate education is a strategic goal for Navy officers, it was found that current URL career progression does not provide an adequate time for resident graduate education. In addition...

Complex economic and managerial problems cannot be solved anymore with traditional single discipline and linear thinking mindsets. Employers will therefore increasingly require their employees to have the capacity to redesign in systems and sustainability terms. In other words, there is an increasing demand for society to move away from linear thinking that often leads to “quick fixes” that do not last, to a new way of thinking that is systems-based. Understanding the principles of interconnectedness, feedback and leverage points in systems and appreciating the value of cross-sectoral/disciplinary communication and collaboration are the only ways in which society will be able to find long lasting, sustainable solutions to the many problems we are facing. Developing such an understanding in order to address complex economic and managerial challenges, requires a strong level of awareness of the value of knowledge on systems approaches and tools that will increase the demand for systems education. However, it is evident in many institutions worldwide that the establishment of systems education is a highly complex task. The Evolutionary Learning Laboratory (ELLab) for dealing with complex issues was therefore used to establish an ELLab for systems education in the Adelaide University Business School. This caused a revolution regarding the integration of systems concepts into discipline specific courses and the development of standalone core systems courses that will help to instill those graduate attributes that industry wants. The ELLab consists of seven steps...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; This thesis analyzes the top ten Master's of Business Administration (MBA) programs and top ten Public Management programs in the United States and has established a definition of quality in graduate management education in terms of programs offered, students selected and faculty. The top ten MBA and Public Management programs were then compared to the Master of Science (MS) in Management offered at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). With these comparative data, basic similarities and differences are identified between NPS and the selected programs. The structure of the MS in Management at NPS is similar to the MBA and Public Management curricula by requiring an extensive mission-related project (thesis), prior professional work experience and learning through a team based orientation. Keeping with its mission, the Department of Systems Management offers curricula that span programs from both MBA and Public Management. Because of this broader scope, the average length for the MS in Management at NPS is about two months longer than the average MBA and Public Management program. Additionally, the average total courses taken are the same as the average MBA program but six more than the average Public Management program. Students at NPS are selected based on academic and leadership ability instead of GMAT and GRE scores used at the selected schools. Finally...

Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited; The main purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between graduate education and the job performance of DoD civilian employees. The thesis focuses on selected job performance measures for all civilian DoD personnel employed between 1986 and 1999, except for those in the National Imagery and Mapping Agency and direct and indirect hire civilian employees outside the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) provided the personnel data. Performance measures that are analyzed include promotion, promotion speed, performance ratings, earnings and retention. Three different techniques are used to estimate performance models. First, ordinary least squares is used to estimate the salary and performance rating models. Second, binary logit regression is used to estimate promotion, retention, and performance rating models. Third, survival analysis using Cox Regression estimates the speed of promotion and the time to separation. The results indicate that employees with a Master's or Doctorate earned more in average salary but experienced lower salary growth than employees with a Bachelor's degree. Also advanced degree holders are promoted more slowly since they enter at a higher GS grade. Higher educated employees were also more likely to leave federal service...

MBA Professional Report; In light of the Navy's transformation plan, advanced business education is increasing in importance. As part of the Navy's Sea Power 21 strategy, Sea Enterprise encourages Naval Aviation to steer historical management practices towards better business practices. As pilots and Naval Flight Officers evolve from Mission Commander to Commanding Officer, they must be equipped with requisite business skill sets to engage the challenge of balancing aircraft modernization with current readiness. This project analyzes the supply and demand for postgraduate business education to determine how prepared Naval Aviation is to achieve long-term transformation objectives. The results show that 25 percent of all aviation officers (O-1 to O- 6) have a graduate business degree; 17 percent of Commanding Officers with advanced degrees have a business specialization; and 2.5 percent of aviation officer billets require a postgraduate business degree. Recommendations to better prepare the aviation community for the Sea Enterprise environment include: (1) Early emphasis of graduate business education, (2) Promote advanced business education as a major career milestone, (3) Tie first shore tour assignments to graduate business education...

Graduate education in business administration was developed in the U.S. around the turn of the twentieth century. MBA and similar graduate-level business programs took hold more slowly in other countries, but the number of such programs expanded more rapidly from the 1960s onward. In an effort to determine what firms from these countries require from business school graduates, the IFC used its extensive contacts with these firms to conduct a survey of the quality of business education in these countries. The survey results imply that the strengths and weaknesses of developing and transition country MBAs seem to overlap with those of MBAs from the U.S.: managers in the U.S. and in the developing countries find that the technical and analytical skills of MBAs are well developed while the practical training/skills and communication/language skills of MBAs are significantly lacking. On the whole, only the African and Middle Eastern firms were significantly dissatisfied with the quality of local MBA graduates. The survey results show that MBAs worldwide are not fully satisfying the needs of firms. Each of the other regions of the world has its own particular weaknesses...

Entrepreneurship is of fundamental importance as a catalyst for innovation, job creation, and economic well-being. Policymakers have a strong interest in promoting entrepreneurship given that its development is necessary for fighting poverty and unemployment. This paper is an initial contribution to help fill gap, performing a systematic review of Entrepreneurship Education and Training (EET) programs worldwide and developing a conceptual framework that is applied to systematically analyze EET programs. The objective of this framework paper is to identify the dimensions of EET programs that matter for realizing the spectrum of EET-related outcomes. To meet that objective, the paper presents a conceptual framework and applies it to systematically analyze effective EET programs. The aim is to find common practices and trends across effective programs and draw from them practical insights of value to future EET program design and implementation. This framework paper is organized into four parts: part one summarizes major findings and trends from a review of EET research and provides definitions to distinguish between Entrepreneurship Education (EE) and Entrepreneurship Training (ET). Part two outlines the conceptual framework that emerged from the review of EET research. Part three analyzes the global landscape of EET programs by target group and provides findings from that analysis. Part four summarizes the study's findings...

The development of the institutional capacity to create and evaluate economic policies remains a critical need-and constraint-in most transition economies if they are to complete the successful passage to fully functioning market economies. To take an active role in the transition process, economic policymakers, business leaders, government officials, and others need a thorough grounding in market-based economics. This requires strengthening economics education and providing support for qualified economists to teach economics at all levels and to carry out high-quality research and policy analysis. Although the education systems in a handful of countries have already risen to the challenge, in many other transition countries, the structure of educational and research institutes remains grounded in the Communist model. This paper presents findings from a comprehensive study assessing the state of economics education and research in 24 countries in East-Central Europe and the former Soviet Union. While 20 countries were initially included because preliminary assessments showed that they lacked the capability to offer high-quality economics education...

Both educators and politicians appear to be quite concerned about a dropout rate in Ontario's public schools of some 30 percent. With the basic understanding that a high dropout rate is costly both in economic terms and in human terms, something quite obviously needs to be done to reduce the dropout rate in Ontario schools and, in doing so, ensuring Ontario and its graduates an active role in a growing global economy. This study is an exploratory pilot study in that it examined mentoring and the role that mentoring can play in assisting a student in staying in school and graduating from secondary school. Also incorporated in this is co-operative education and the role it can play, through mentoring, in making students aware of lifestyle level of employment, and of the skills necessary to obtain gainful, meaningful employment. In order to gain information on student attitudes, needs and expectations of a mentoring situation, a series of three questionnaires was used. Also, a questionnaire was distributed to the various co-operative education employers. The intent of this questionnaire was to probe the attitudes, needs and expectations of a mentoring situation from the perspective of an employer. The findings of this study indicated that co-operative education and mentoring are a very valuable and useful component in education. There exist certain factors in a co-operative education setting that serve to enhance and to augment the traditional or "theoretical" setting of the classroom. In addition...

This exploratory, descriptive action research study is based on a survey of a sample of convenience consisting of 172 college and university marketing students, and 5 professors who were experienced in teaching in an internet based environment. The students that were surveyed were studying e-commerce and international business in 3^^ and 4*'' year classes at a leading imiversity in Ontario and e-commerce in 5^ semester classes at a leading college. These classes were taught using a hybrid teaching style with the contribution of a large website that contained pertinent text and audio material. Hybrid teaching employs web based course materials (some in the form of Learning Objects) to deliver curriculimi material both during the attended lectures and also for students accessing the course web page outside of class hours. The survey was in the form on an online questionnaire. The research questions explored in this study were: 1. What factors influence the students' ability to access and learn from web based course content? 2. How likely are the students to use selected elements of internet based curriculum for learning academic content? 3. What is the preferred physical environment to facilitate learning in a hybrid environment? 4. How effective are selected teaching/learning strategies in a hybrid environment? The findings of this study suggest that students are very interested in being part of the learning process by contributing to a course web site. Specifically...

This article maps the idiosyncratic features in the development of graduate and postgraduate management education in Mexico City. The emergence of these degrees is partly in response to the globalization of higher education but also to the transformation of Mexican business organisations into a more hierarchical structure. The evolution of the institutional setting thus offers an indirect study of the appearance of professional managers in a region otherwise dominated by family run firms. As a result, this article contributes to contemporary Mexican business history by linking the forms of interaction between multinationals, indigenous businesses and management education.
