Business students score in top 20 percent
April 8, 2010
The Class of 2010 graduating business majors of Corban University recently completed the Major Field Test in Business, a comprehensive exam produced by Educational Testing Services. Schools participating in the national assessment ranged from Christian institutions like Seattle Pacific and Baylor (Texas) to major state universities like University of Oregon. Six hundred eighteen schools across the country took the assessment, and the Corban test-takers ranked in the top 20 percent.
Dean of Business Jon Meyers said, “We’ve always known we have talented, hard-working students — this just confirms it.”
This is the fourth consecutive year the assessment tool was administered for ongoing departmental purposes, as well as for comparing student achievement levels to other schools of business. Weighed against the 618 schools using the exam in 2010, Corban scored in the 80th percentile. The cumulative mean score for Corban students was 158, which exceeds the national mean of 153. Moreover, Corban’s student mean score has exceeded the national mean for all four years of testing.
Meyers also said, “It’s a tribute to our faculty, who are committed to helping our students learn key business knowledge. When you consider the fact that each faculty member also brings many years of real world experience into the classroom, it’s a combination that’s tough to beat.”
