Proven Success for the School of Business
King’s business students test in top 1% of American business programs
Last year, King’s students dramatically outpaced their peers in national civic literacy tests. This year, seniors at King’s studying Business Management took the ETS Major Field Test for the first time. Results show that in a pool of almost 250 undergraduate programs, King’s placed in the top 1% of all programs.
According to ETS, Field Tests “go beyond the measurement of factual knowledge by helping you evaluate students’ ability to analyze and solve problems, understand relationships and interpret material from their major field of study.” Program administrators design tests to evaluate student performance and compare the effectiveness of the business major against similar institutions nationwide.
In addition to placing in the top 1% of programs nationwide, Leigh-Anne Walker, Program Chair of the School of Business said “results were superior across the board: no King's student scored lower than the average score nationwide.”

The test results are another indication that our faculty prepare students for success in the professional business environment. “I am so proud of our students and their excellent performance,” Walker said. “They have received not only a high quality liberal arts education but also superb training in business; a potent combination for future business leaders."
The King’s College educates students in the ideas upon which nations rise and fall. With a focused curriculum in the liberal arts tradition, students are prepared to help shape, and eventually to lead, the institutions of government, civil society, media, law, business, education, the arts, and the church. King’s is a Christian college located in New York City.
