UNO Business Students Rank High on Exams
Omaha - University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) College of Business Administration (CBA) graduate students and senior-level undergraduates performed near the top nationally on the most recent standardized exams on business topics, according to results from the Educational Testing Service (ETS). UNO master of business administration students ranked in the top five percent, nationally, while undergraduates ranked in the top 15 percent.
“These scores are extremely gratifying for the college,” said Louis Pol, dean of the UNO CBA. “Major Field Testing is a national benchmark, and this underscores the quality of our students and programs.”
According to the ETS, “The exams rank student achievement within a field of study to national comparative data.” Colleges and universities use the exams, Major Field Tests, to measure student academic achievement and to assess the educational outcomes of programs.
Virtually all UNO business seniors who were enrolled in the final business course, more than170 students, took the Major Field Tests. Their average scores are in the top five percent, nationally, in the sections on accounting, finance, marketing and international issues.
The 31 UNO M.B.A. students received top five percent ranking, nationally, in all five sections of the exam: managerial accounting, finance, marketing, management and strategic integration.
Test performance of the UNO CBA’s undergraduates was ranked against test results of business students from 553 colleges and universities, including Georgia State, Rutgers, Texas A&M, the University of Wyoming, Xavier and the United States Air Force Academy. UNO M.B.A. students were ranked against students from 109 M.B.A. programs, including Clemson, Minnesota State University Mankato, Xavier and the University of Wyoming.
ETS is the home of a number of major college admission and assessment exams, including the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) and the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). For more information, call (402) 554-3502.
