Huntsman MBA Students Come Out on Top

By Connor Child

MBA students at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business are some of the brightest in the nation according to a national test.

All MBA students at the Huntsman School participate in the MBA version of the Educational Testing Services (ETS) Major Field Test in business. The scores for the on-campus, full-time cohort were recently released, and Huntsman students scored among the best in the nation. Students on the Logan campus scored in the 90th percentile overall, meaning they scored higher than 89 percent of all students. The test is administered by 225 institutions, and 14,406 students participated in the most recent test.

USU MBA students also made notable improvements in several categories of the test. The test is broken up into five main topical fields – marketing, management, finance, managerial accounting, and strategic integration. Logan MBA students finished in the 90th percentile in the marketing category, a 20 percent improvement from 2009.
