Senior Business Students Achieve Top Ranking on National Exam

Belmont’s College of Business Administration announced today that many of its graduating seniors scored at or above the top 10 percent level on the Major Field Test in Business, an exam produced by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) of Princeton, N.J. The ETS exam has 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 School 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 Fall 2009 cohort who scored in the Top 10 percent or higher nationally include: Sheridan Hare (Smithfield, VA); Christopher Heltzel (Cleveland, OH); James Jacques (Nashville, TN); Kevin Lane (Spartanburg, SC); Phillip Lester (St. Joseph, MI); Scott O’Brien (Brookings, SD); James Pierce (Spring Hill, TN); Bryn Rocke (Durban, South Africa); Andrew Roebuck (Franklin, TN); Ryan Schultz (San Antonio, TX); William Shipp (Brentwood, TN); Chris Small (Atlanta, GA); and Elizabeth Thames (Dalton, GA).
