The Graham School of Business is accredited by Accreditation Council for Business Schools & Programs (ACBSP), and they ask member institutions to publicly post information about student outcomes. Here are some indicators we consider important.
Retention Rates of Recent Entering Cohorts
Retention rates look at the percentage of full time, first time, Bachelor's degree-seeking undergraduates who enter in one fall semester and are still enrolled at the college during the next fall semester. Here are the rates for students whose most recent major on record was in the Graham School of Business:
- Fall of 2016 entering cohort: 81% retention
- Fall of 2015 entering cohort: 77% retention
- Fall of 2014 entering cohort: 77% retention
Time to Degree of Recent Graduates
Time to Degree looks at how long it took Graham School of Business graduates to achieve their bachelor's degrees. For degree recipients in the past few years, here is how much time passed between the student's first semester at York College and the semester when they received their degree. These calculations include students who came to York College as Bachelor's degree-seeking, first time (not transfer), full-time, first-year (total credits less than 30), undergraduate students.
*Note: This is NOT the same as a graduation rate or completion rate as those terms are typically used in Higher Education.
