Core Business Knowledge Exam
The Perdue School of Business has set specific and measurable learning
goals. The very first of these learning goals states that upon
graduation, students will be knowledgeable about business concepts and
able to apply that knowledge. To ensure that this goal is being met, the
Core Business Knowledge exam was designed to measure student learning.
This is a
comprehensive online (via MyClasses) multiple-choice exam that covers
topics in each of the core business courses (both upper and lower
division courses, as stated on your major checklist). Calculators
may be used - you need to provide your own and it cannot be a cell
phone. You will be given a variety of dates and times to sign up for the
exam. It is important that you be sure to attend the time
signed up for as space is very limited.
For PSB's purposes, the results of the exam are aggregated and analyzed based on specific
items and clusters (e.g., topics in finance). The PSB can then determine
if, as a whole, students are or are not learning what we are intending
them to learn before graduating. As a result, course content can be
reevaluated, ensuring continuous improvement. Basically, your results
will benefit future students.
For your purposes, a minimum score of 60 must
be attained to satisfy this requirement for BUAD 400. A
study guide is available in Myclasses.
