Quality Matters - Marketing/Management Department


Quality Matters Faculty2

Over the past couple of years the, Marketing/Management Department has been working toward the goal of having all online courses offered for the online Bachelors of Science in Management/Marketing meet the Quality Matters (QM) standards for online courses.  Currently, the department has eleven of their online courses for this program meeting QM standards. Once all online courses in the program meet standards, the department plans to market the program as QM certified.

QM is a faculty-centered, peer review process that is designed to certify the quality of online and blended courses. Based on research-supported and published best practices, the QM Rubric is a set of 41 standards by which to evaluate the design of online and blended courses. A team of three peer reviewers, including a subject matter expert, use the QM rubric to review the online course site and provide the faculty developer with feedback.

Online courses that have met QM standards for Marketing/Management include:

Several other online courses from different departments on campus have met QM standards at Northwest.  These include:
