WWU Business Seniors Score in 99th Percentile on MFT

Seniors in the Walla Walla University School of Business scored in the 99th percentile on the 2019–20 Major Field Test (MFT) in business. This is the highest percentile WWU students have achieved in the 29 years the university has been administering the assessment test and continues a trend since 2013 of WWU seniors scoring above the 90th percentile.

“We believe these stellar results reflect the quality of our students and our program,” says Patience Taruwinga, dean of the School of Business and associate professor of business.

For the 2019–20 testing cycle, more than 120,781 business seniors at 523 other business schools across the nation took the MFT in business. The test measures how well students know the core business subjects of accounting, economics, finance, management, statistics, marketing, law, information systems and international issues.

The five-year average percentile for WWU seniors is 94.
