Common Terms

Higher education comes with its own set of terms which you may or may not have encountered before.  You can find a list to many of them, along with definitions, here.  In addition to several of the terms linked previously, Quantic School of Business and Technology also frequently refers to the following:

Concentration | Defer | Diploma | Library | Prompt | Rubric | Specialization | Transcript

Concentration: A set of related courses that have been grouped together for ease of study.  For example, the Accounting concentration is made of six courses including, Accounting I, Stocks and Bonds, and Managerial Accounting, among others.

Defer: Students who are accepted and registered are able to defer their enrollment at any time during the schedule.  Deferring enrollment transfers all progress to a new class, allowing you to pause your studies and resume them at a later date.  Students can defer their enrollment twice, for no more than 12 months each time.  More information here.

Diploma: Upon graduation, Quantic will mail all graduated students a paper diploma, signifying that they have completed the program and graduated with an official MBA or Executive MBA degree.

Library: Quantic offers access to an online research library available to all of our accepted students.  Use the available resources to assist with your projects, and even schedule time with our librarian for an orientation on how to use the tools. See the full description of library services here.

Prompt: A prompt refers to the document which contains all the necessary information to complete a case study project or presentation.  Prompts are sent out to all students via email, and posted to Slack.  Read the prompt to understand the project requirements and find links to the case study and grading rubric.

Rubric: A document that outlines how a project will be graded.  This scoring document ensures that students are aware of the requirements, and that all projects are measured against the same standards.

Specialization: Executive MBA students are required to complete three Specializations.  These special Concentrations can be found at the bottom of your Quantic Home page.  Three separate periods are set aside in the schedule to complete the specializations of your own choosing.  Learn more here!

Transcript: A transcript is a copy of your academic record from an education institution.  Transcripts are different from diplomas and typically list the courses completed.  You can request a digital copy of your Quantic transcript at any time.  Quantic requires that you submit an official transcript for the highest completed degree listed on your application.
