April 23, 2015

MISSOULA – School of Business Administration students at the University of Montana continue to knock the Business Major Field Test out of the park. Overall, the 171 UM students taking the test in the spring semester averaged in the 95th percentile nationwide.

Forty-one UM students who will graduate in spring 2015 scored in the 90th percentile or above. That is the largest number of students scoring in the 90th percentile or above in any one semester since the business school started administering this test to its students in 2009.

The Business Major Field Test, administered by more than 500 universities nationwide, measures critical knowledge and understanding obtained by students during their undergraduate studies and offers UM’s SoBA a way to evaluate its students’ performance and program’s overall effectiveness against similar institutions around the country.

The test covers a broad set of topics, including accounting, economics, management, quantitative business analysis, information systems, finance, marketing, legal and social environment, and international issues.

The following 41 students achieved scores at or higher than the 90th percentile on the spring 2015 Business Major Field Test: Suzanne Arntz, Devon Asmussen, Nathan Bailey, Matthew Balliet, Alexander Basile, Natalie Black, Genevieve Boyer, Glenda Bradshaw, Connor Bray, Samantha Cannon, Joseph Crowley, Joel Davison, John Eberhard, Lindsay Forman, Lucas Germer, John Gibson, Trenton Hancock, Matthew Hanson, Adam Hefenieder, Ryan Hover, Brian Hybner, Kevin Jablonski, David Kuhn, Bert Martin, Steve McClain, Patrick Mead, Carly Miller, Rylie Moore, Joshua Morasko, Zachery Nybo, Parker Olinger, Ethan Ranger, Kevin Rouse, Cody Sevier, Spencer Sheehan, Alanna Shuey, Mark Simonton, Megan Stevenson, Zachary Stoeger, Andrew Todaro, Brittany Urbaniak and Josephine Warner.
