Through the study, 12 competencies emerged as key areas where Krannert wishes to focus for the undergraduate program. While most (if not all) of these competencies have been important over time within the curriculum/extra-curriculum of Krannert, pulling these 12 competencies into this initiative provides a solid framework for targeted focus, discussion, development and evaluation.
