Assessment Center

How do you stack up?

Valpo is a national and international leader in the Assessment Center concept with one of the few centers in the country. Our Assessment Center puts you face-to-face with seasoned professionals so you can showcase your skills and build your network. Through simulated business situations, students demonstrate their decision-making, communication, and problem-solving skills then get direct feedback from the professional panel.

Typically, more than 80 regional executives and 200 sophomores and seniors participate in half-day Assessment Center programs.

Valpo’s internationally recognized Assessment Center gets praise from everyone that participates! Here’s what they say:

Executive assessors:

  • “It was great to watch the ‘light bulb go on’ as we appraised their performance during exercises.”
  • “The exercises we did were very realistic and students will experience the same type of scenarios in the workplace.”
  • “I believe the best thing about the Assessment Center program is that students receive feedback and suggestions from professionals.”

Student participants:

  • “Participating really showed me my weaknesses and strengths. I was really impressed by how the assessors reinforced my strengths – I came out of the program feeling good about myself and my future.”
  • “The executive assessor I worked with pointed out things that I never would have realized on my own.”
