Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v7 n4 p279-284 2014
It is often the goal or mission of higher education to prepare graduates for leadership roles in organizations and the community. Even if we are to assume that leadership skills can be developed, determining the appropriate ways to teach and measure leadership is often debated. Our study used quantitative data from the ETS Business Major Field Test (MFT) as an external measure and compared those results to specific items on a survey to determine if students who had leadership roles on campus or internships also scored higher on the ETS MFT test.
