LSSU’s Escanaba center recognizes students

ESCANABA — Students in Lake Superior State University’s Lukenda School of Business have again performed exceptionally well on the Major Field Test (MFT) in Business, administered by Educational Testing Service.

The Lukenda School of Business uses the MFT to assess the student learning outcomes of its bachelor degree programs each year. The test measures knowledge in the areas of accounting, economics, management, quantitative business analysis, finance, marketing, legal and social environment, information systems and international issues. The scores of graduating seniors who took the MFT during the 2017/2018 academic year were compared with those of thousands of business students from 400 institutions.

Escanaba/Iron Mountain Regional Center student Bailey Dalgord of Escanaba (majoring in accounting) scored in the top 10 percent of all participating students in the United States. Chelsea Auge of Gladstone (majoring in business administration-management) scored in the top 20 percent of students.

“We’re very proud of the demonstrated success of this year’s business graduates. These results further validate LSSU’s place among the best undergraduate business programs in North America,” said David Roland Finley, dean of LSSU’s College of Innovation and Solutions. “Great students, expert faculty, and a state-of-the-art facility combine to produce exceptional results.” he added.

LSSU’s Lukenda School of Business is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs.

Students can take classes at Bay College, which offers LSSU baccalaureate programs in Escanaba and Iron Mountain through a partnership with LSSU.
