There is no greater priority for an institution of higher education than a clear commitment to its Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs). By definition a university seeks to generate and transfer learning. SLOs define that learning and create benchmarks to gauge and to guide its effective delivery.
LIGS University’s SLOs are divided into three interlinked categories, each of which springs from its mission to provide premiere quality education to a global student base at a reasonable cost.
LIGS University SLOs are interrelated in the sense that each level of outcome defines and reflects the others. CLOs, for example, reflect PLOs, which spring from ILOs.

We are committed to transparency and wide understanding of data on student achievement and success. Our student achievement data are:
|Program||Graduation Rates||Retention and Persistence|
|MBA||31,3 %||95,4 %|
|MSc||38,4 %||90,3 %|
Our net graduation rate for MBA degree program stands at 31.3% and it is 38.4% for the MSc program (percentage of graduates completing the program in three years or less for cohorts with a start year 2011 - 2014)
Our master’s degree programs are designed to be completed within two years. 49% of our MBA graduates and 62% of our MSc graduates finish in the anticipated time window.
Our doctoral degree programs are designed to be completed within three years. Since first students enrolled in doctoral degree programs only in 2014 it is still too early to gain relevant data for time of completion and graduation rates of doctoral degree students.
