Performance Ready Reading
The Division of Business is proud of its Performance Ready Reading (PRR) program!! Originally, an off-shoot of Xavier's Quality Enhancement Plan, the PRR aims to promote professional and student success through its three main objectives
- Introduce students to contemporary and critical business knowledge that is aligned with the DOB's mission and values
- Incorporate the practical aspects of organizations into the theoretical models of business education
- Integrate business ideas and applications across diverse functional areas
The cornerstone of PRR is a popular press text that is chosen semi-annually. This text is then used by DOB faculty across courses and levels, to ensure that students are provide multiple opportunities to interact with the material as well as review it from multiple perspectives. Further, the Division holds an annual presentation competition to showcase students' knowledge and aptitude.
