Major Field Tests

Major Field Tests logoThe Major Field Tests (MFTs) are innovative undergraduate and MBA outcome assessments designed to measure the basic knowledge and understanding achieved by students in a major field of study. Test results enable academic departments to better assess and refine curricula, and gauge the progress of students compared to others in the program and those in similar programs at schools throughout the country. All MFTs are proctored, multiple choice exams designed to assess mastery of concepts and principles as well as knowledge expected of you at the conclusion of a major in specific subject areas.
