Graduating seniors at the University of Northern Colorado's Monfort College of Business continue to perform at an exceptional level on the Educational Testing Service Major Field Test in Business, according to Don Gudmundson, dean of the college.
During the 2011 fall semester, seniors scored in the top four percent collectively on the nationally administered standardized test. Monfort College of Business seniors have scored in the top 4-10 percent of students every year since 2003.
The test is the most widely used standardized instrument to assess core business knowledge at undergraduate business programs nationwide. According to the latest measurement approximately 438 business schools administered the exam.
"Our student scores are a great accomplishment that illustrates the quality of our students and our program," said Gudmundson. "We have a tradition of excellence we can all be proud of."
More than 32,000 students nationwide were tested throughout the year in areas including accounting, finance, quantitative business analysis, management, marketing, legal/social environment, international business, and economics. The results are used as a driver for curricular improvement at the college. All Monfort students must complete the online exam in their final year of study.
Other business programs at universities nationwide that have administered the exam recently include Quinnipiac University, Metro State College of Denver, Tulane University, California Polytechnic State University, University of Missouri, University of Nebraska and Boston College.
