Admission Criteria and Other Variables as Predictors of Business Student Graduation
Truell, Allen D.; Woosley, Sherry
College Student Journal, v42 n2 p348-356 Jun 2008
Previous research has largely overlooked discipline specific admission criteria at the undergraduate level and its relationship to student success. Thus, the purpose of this study was to determine if college of business admission criteria and other variables predicted undergraduate college of business student graduation. The specific variables examined in this study included gender, race/ethnicity, math academic aptitude score, verbal academic aptitude score, college of business accounting GPA, college of business computer proficiency GPA, college of business economics GPA, college of business statistics GPA, required English GPA, and required math GPA. Results of the logistic regression indicate the model was statistically significant. Specifically, the variable college of business statistics GPA was positively associated with high probabilities of graduation. Further, about 87% students meeting the college of business admission criteria who began their studies in the fall of 2000 had graduated by July of 2005. (Contains 2 tables.)
