3 Where we are on the journey Initial idea spurred by criticism of religious education; idea of Jesuit branding CJBE 05 presentation CJBE 06 – the undergrad study The future The grad study The outcomes study

4 The sample – how the schools were selected Jesuit schools Others: religious and non-religious Match on geographic region size SAT

5 The sample 26 Jesuit schools all US that have business schools/depts all but Holy Cross and Spring Hill 26 Schools with a religious affiliation Not Jesuit BUT, all Christian; 22/26 Catholic 26 Schools with no religious affiliation

7 The sample – Test scores Avg. SAT/ACT JesuitOtherNonOther + Non Total SAT * ACT *23.89*

8 The sample – Test scores Avg. SAT/ACT With what factors are test scores significantly correlated with in the sample? % AHANA for ACT % Male students Student/faculty ratio School values on home page AACSB accreditation

9 The sample – Descriptive Stats JesuitOtherNonOther + Non Total % AHANA % Intl % Male

10 The sample – Descriptive Stats JesuitOtherNonOther + Non Total Class size St/fac Ratio *18.9 # core classes **

11 The Core curriculum or general education requirements Critiques: Taught by junior faculty or TAs No coherence across requirements Too many courses approved to meet requirements Requirements often met at end of college career

12 Calls for change 89: Cheney: 50 Hours: A core curriculum for college students 98: The troubling State of General Education: A study of six Virginia Public Colleges and Universities 06: TX and OH state systems

14 Sponsoring values on home page Examples: A link to Jesuit identity The word Jesuit – often only once Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam – NO!! Outline of a chapel, dove, etc. – NO!!

15 Significant differences – A recap Jesuit better on all the following: SAT ACT % Faculty w/ term degree Sponsoring value on home page Sponsoring value on b-school home page Core classes Student/faculty ratio

18 AACSB Accreditation With what factors is AACSB accreditation significantly correlated in the sample? % Male Sponsoring values on home page # core classes Class size % Faculty w/ terminal degree Size (total and B-school) Standardized tests (ACT and SAT)

19 Is AACSB driving the bus? Good news – critics have said that Jesuit business education differs only as a result of the liberal arts core – thats not the case! Bad news – are we any different than other AACSB-accredited schools?

20 Accredited vs. others On what factors do the AACSB accredited and non-accredited schools differ in a significant way? % Male Sponsoring values on home page # core classes Class size % Faculty w/ terminal degree Size (total and B-school) Standardized tests (ACT and SAT)

21 Significant differences – A recap Jesuit better on all the following: SAT ACT % Faculty w/ term degree Sponsoring values on home page Sponsoring values on b-school home page Core classes Student/faculty ratio
