The Major Field Test program is an innovative battery of undergraduate outcomes that is used by schools and departments at more than 600 colleges and universities globally to measure student academic achievement and growth. Academic departments benefit from the use of the tests as the scores allow for detailed curriculum review and evaluation. Students benefit from the tests by having an effective metric to determine their own level of achievement, comparing their scores with those of other students in the program and with national comparative data.
The test is a requirement for Business Administration Majors and is given as part of the Strategic Management/Policy class. This computerized exam takes approximately 2 hours to complete. Although, some examinees finish earlier. Students are encouraged to work at their own pace, yet remain aware of the time.
