Business schools across the nation, to meet the accreditation standards of the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), must incorporate results of certain outcomes assessments for evaluation of programs efficacy and continuous improvement purposes. The Educational Testing Service Major Field Test in Business Administration (ETS MFT-B) helps business institutions to evaluate their programs and to make improvements through changes in the curriculum.
This study examined if the ACT scores, Cumulative Grade Point Average, and Term Grade Point Average determined the performance on the ETS MFT-B. The sample consisted of 59 business students enrolled in the Management Policy course at Lindenwood University’s School of Business and Entrepreneurship (SB&E) in the Spring of 2008 to Spring of 2009. The findings indicated a statistical significance between the ACT scores and the ETS MFT scores. The Cumulative and Term Grade Point Averages did not indicate statistically significant relationships with student’s performance on the ETS MFT.
