Traditionally, higher academic education has favoured acquisition of individualized conceptual knowledge over context-independent procedural knowledge.

This classification can inform discussion around difficulties associated with issues such as assessment of prior learning, as well as transfers and bridges from applied degrees to baccalaureate degrees in business education.
