AMU Economics Students Outscore 84% of the Nation!


Every year, the AMU Economics Department tests its graduating seniors’ knowledge of economics through a nationally-normed, standardized test, known as the Major Field Test.

This year, our Economics seniors scored better than 84% of the schools that use the Economics MFT (the overall score was at the eighty-fourth percentile).  Even better, in the subfield of Macroeconomics, our students averaged at the 91st percentile – our students did better than more than 90% of their peers.

The MFT is produced by the same organization that administers the SAT and that produces the GRE and TOEFL exam.  Here are some details: https://www.ets.org/mft/scores/compare_data .  Seventy-four other programs used the Economics MFT last year, including some very well-known colleges and universities.
