96th percentile on Major Field Test in Business

WWU School of Business seniors scored in the 96th percentile for the annual MFT exam

Seniors in the Walla Walla University School of Business scored in the 96th percentile on the Major Field Test in Business (MFT) in 2015. This year approximately 69,000 business seniors from 563 business schools across the nation took the test. A score in the 96th percentile means that 96 percent of business students taking the MFT scored lower than students in the WWU School of Business.

Josefer Montes, professor of business and dean of the School of Business says, “What these MFT scores show is that our business program is for students that are serious about their career and are ready to compete at a high level. Our boutique approach to our program, the small class size, one-on-one interaction with the professors, and the real-life hands on projects all give our students a distinctive learning opportunity.”

The MFT is administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), which is the same organization that administers the Graduate Record Exam and other exit exams for college seniors. The MFT exam takes two hours to complete and tests seniors on how much they know about important business subjects including: accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, business law, quantitative analysis, information systems, and international business.

Since 1992 WWU business seniors have scored in the top 12th percentile. In 2013 WWU seniors scored in the 91st percentile; in 2014 they scored in the 92nd percentile; and this year they scored in the 96th percentile.
