Discipline: Education



The study determined the levels of competency, satisfaction and overall experience of the students enrolled in the different course disciplines at the University of Mindanao as bases for an intervention program. Employing descriptive research, validated questionnaires, mean and frequency, results revealed that the school offers affordable quality education and relevant academic programs. Graduating students who are the respondents of this study have enrolled in courses that are of interest to them and which they believed would help them land a job.  They also have recognized the need to acquire and develop all the necessary competencies related to this job during the span of the academic years of their programs.  These respondents believe that the University of Mindanao can develop competencies needed by its clientele and that this institution has contributed in the development of necessary skills and different competencies needed in the workplace.  The graduating students also believe that learning objectives of the discipline are attained through proper delivery, evaluation and monitoring. However, there are still areas that need to be improved to meet the expectations and ultimate satisfaction of students.
