Our results are proven by national test scores, by student employment placements, by alumni engagement, and by our students' successes in external competitions. Most of our graduates obtain employment by the fall of their graduation year. In addition many of our ABE graduates go onto graduate school or obtain advanced certification as CPA’s, CFA’s and more!
- Graduating seniors in ABE routinely score at or above the 80th percentile on the Major Field Test for business. This national exam is administered each year by the Educational Testing Service, the same people who administer the SATs.
- Each year students in the business honor society, Tau Pi Phi, compete in an intercollegiate case competitions. These include the Finance Case Competition at McDaniel College and the Tau Pi Phi case competition in Pittsburgh, PA.
- Kristen Penska and fellow Juniata students participated in the Tau Pi Phi competition (2010). As a group Kristen Penska, Zach Jensen, and Shane Gallagher received second place in the three person category of the competition. Kristen stated “The Tai Pi Phi Competition consisted of two Harvard Case Studies. Each was approximately 7-8 pages and consisted of a general business problem. As a group, Zach Jensen, Shane Gallagher, and I drafted an executive summary and created a power point expressing our solution to each of these business problems. We presented these solutions to a panel of three nonacademic judges; meaning they were business owners or work for a business. The judges scored us on our knowledge of case background, our solution, and our overall presentation. The competition was fun; it was great to work with two people who were knowledgeable about different things.”
