Senior Business Students Achieve Top Ranking on National Exam

Belmont’s College of Business Administration announced that several of its graduating students scored at or above the top 10 percent level on the Major Field Test in Business, a set of exams produced by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) of Princeton, N.J. The ETS exams have been administered to almost 85,000 students at 564 undergraduate business programs and almost 16,000 MBA students at 199 graduate business schools across the U.S.
“Many of our students are now demonstrating that they can score very well when compared to their peers at other U.S. business schools” said Susan Taylor, associate dean of the College of Business Administration. “Their performance is a direct reflection of our focus on delivering a high-quality program and the individual attention our students receive from our highly-qualified faculty.”
Undergraduate students from the Summer 2009 cohort who scored in the Top 10 percent or higher nationally include: Gregory Celentano (Bristol, TN), Shannon Hall (Lula, GA), Nancy Pham (Nashville, TN) and David Vigil (Nashville, TN). For graduate students, Jay Crosson (Nashville, TN) performed in the top scoring band and achieved the highest-ever score by a Belmont MBA student.
