Undergraduate Capstone Exam
The Educational Testing Service (ETS) exam is a 120-question test required for all undergraduate students. It is administered during the capstone course, MGMT 4500: Business Policy and Strategic Management. You cannot graduate without taking ETS exam. Your score is worth 10% of your final grade in MGMT 4500.
The test covers areas in accounting, economics, management, quantitative business analysis, information systems, finance, marketing, legal and social environment, and international issues. Some questions are grouped in sets and based on diagrams, charts and data tables. The questions represent a wide range of difficulty and cover depth and breadth in assessing students’ achievement levels.
