Thomas More University has several goals to measure student achievement. University-level measures and data are at http://thomasmore.edu/about/student_achievement_measures.cfm. Measures specific to the Accountancy, Business Administration, and Sports and Entertainment Marketing programs are below. These programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

Student Goal 1: Retention and Graduation

Thomas More University annually tracks the retention and graduation rates of students by program.

Retention rates are calculated for first-time, full-time incoming traditional students based on retention to the second year.

Retention Rates of Traditional Baccalaureate Programs by Cohort Year

Graduation rates are based on completion within 150% of normal time to completion. For instance, bachelor’s programs typically completed within four years have a six year graduation rate. Master’s programs typically completed within two years have a six year graduation rate.

Student Goal 3: Postgraduate Employment and Graduate Programs

Thomas More University tracks graduate activities immediately following graduation in accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act. Students are surveyed and contacted by the Thomas More University Success Center within six months of graduation. The University tracks both the knowledge rate (percentage of students for which we have information) and the career outcome rate (percentage employed, continuing education, in the US Armed Forces, or in a volunteer program) within six months of graduation.
