Graduates of the School of Business and Entrepreneurship Reflect Upon Their Academic Experiences. Research and Planning Report 96-06.
Atherton, Blair
This study examined graduate satisfaction among a sample of graduates of the School of Business and Entrepreneurship (SBE) at Nova Southeastern University. A total of 157 students who graduated between 1992 and 1995 responded to a survey that focused on demographic and background information, educational outcomes, quality indicators, computing skills, and employment and career outcomes. Nearly one-fourth of the respondents had received doctoral degrees, while three-fourths had received master's degrees. The study found that students entered SBE with a mean of 13 years of work experience, and that 73 percent had permanent residence in South Florida. Nearly 97 percent reported that they would recommend their program of study to a friend, and nearly two-thirds said that they would attend the university again if they were to pursue another degree in the future. More than 90 percent of respondents indicated that they had achieved their educational goals. Nearly one-third of respondents were dissatisfied with the availability, access, and orientation to library resources and services, and nearly one-fourth were not satisfied with access to information through technology and computers. A copy of the survey questionnaire and 10 tables of results are appended. (MDM)
