Certification Reflects Extra Effort
MBAResearch, the student organization DECA, and several state education departments co-sponsor the industry-based Institute for Assessment of Skills and Knowledge of Business (A*S*K Institute).
Students and early-career professionals earning an A*S*K certification in general business or in specialized areas such as marketing, finance, or professional selling, demonstrate the extra effort typical of future company leaders. Being certified by the A*S*K Institute indicates that students are willing to be accountable for their learning and that they are interested in positioning themselves for employment and career advancement.
Getting certified requires students to pass an online exam that addresses nationally validated standards. For their efforts, students receive file letters, a web-based profile, and press releases that they can use in their personal portfolios and job/college application materials.
