Undergraduate students in PLNU’s Fermanian School of Business earned high scores on the 2012 Major Fields Test, “comprehensive undergraduate and MBA outcomes assessments designed to measure the critical knowledge and understanding obtained by students in a major field of study,” according to the Educational Testing Service (ETS) website.
The test takers, who took the test in fall 2011, scored in the 91st percentile overall and did particularly well in the accounting portion, scoring in the top one percent in the nation.
“PLNU seeks to prepare students to be equipped with high level critical thinking skills and real world knowledge,” said Dr. Becky Havens, professor of economics. “Ultimately, the results of this test are due to our extraordinary business students and faculty.”
The test is offered in more than a dozen undergraduate fields of study, and students typically take it during the last year of their studies, after they have fulfilled most of the classes within their major.
