On June 22, 2021 at the Armenian State University of Economics (ASUE) the director of ArmEnic Gayane Harutyunyan and higher education specialist Ani Hovhannisyan presented the results of the benchmarking of the “Finance” bachelor’s program. The benchmarking of the learning outcomes was done within the framework of the research program conducted by ASUE, in the focus groups of which ArmEnic is included. Bachelor’s programs from three universities were pre-selected for the benchmarking, the results of which were analyzed by ArmEnic using the UNESCO World Reference Levels digital tool. The graphical profile created as a result of the analysis showed the strengths and weaknesses of the program in terms of capacities, knowledge and skills. A similar analysis will be performed by ArmEnic for ASUE “Economics” bachelor’s program.
