Several of QUEST's Learning Outcomes are relevant to this elective. LO 1 is highlighted by the Guidelines for Client Involvement assignment, as students must select and use an appropriate tool to describe the process of client involvement. The Methodological Approach Paper assignment requires use of both Problem Identification and Methodology elements of LO4. In general, work on teams in this course is related to LO 5. Both of the final deliverables for the course, the Project Scope and Project Pitch require Articulation, Enthusiasm, Clarity, and Ability to Convey Difficult Concepts (all elements of LO 6). Additionally, client emails, phone calls, and site visits require students to utilize skills in Listening, Communication, Attire, and Ethics (LO 8).

This elective requires students to demonstrate proficient behaviors in many of the program's learning outcomes. Students must select and use an appropriate tool and evaluate the use of that tool in working on their problem (LO 1). They must select and use an appropriate methodology in working with their client and synthesize appropriate qualitative and quantitative data analysis techniques as part of this course (LO 3). This is an excellent opportunity for students to learn and apply all elements of LO 4 (Provide Solutions to Corporate Partners). Students work in multidiciplinary teams (LO 5) at all stages in this course. Many presentations require the skills outlined by LO 6 (Articulation, Enthusiasm, Clarity, Ability to Convey Difficult Concepts) and Project Management skills (LO 7) are emphasized throughout the course (Parsing Complex Tasks, Project Definition, Project Resource Allocation, Risk Management). Finally, the course requires Business Etiquette skills (LO 8) as it is highly centered around client interactions.
