Half a dozen College of Charleston MBA candidates scored in the top 90th percentile in the nation on the ETS® Major Field Test for the MBA, including one score in the 99th percentile. John Moye recorded one of the highest scores in the nation on the comprehensive national assessment test that is required for completion of the School of Business global MBA program.

“You really can’t study for the ETS Field Test because it covers so much information,” Moye says. “I really credit my professors and the program for preparing me so well. I scored the highest on the management section of the test, and that was actually one of my favorite classes (with professor Tom Kent).”

Moye is a 2005 College of Charleston graduate with majors in international business and Spanish. He’s originally from the Charleston area and is a graduate of Wando High School. Moye spent three years in Costa Rica working for Young Life, a non-profit, youth-based organization. While there he raised $100,000 through fundraising efforts, developed strategic community networks, and created a nine-month internship program.

Upon completion of the program, Moye would like to be part of a company that shares his work and life values – to provide some tangible product or service that will add value to people’s lives.

“This MBA program has really contributed to a shift in my view of the value different businesses can provide,” Moye notes. “Non-profits are not the only way to make an impact on the world – many for-profit companies give back or provide value through their products and services. And becoming an entrepreneur certainly isn’t out of the question!”

Moye cites the School of Business mentorship program as one of the best experiences. His primary mentor was Sharon Kingman ’80, a business consultant and member of the College of Charleston Foundation Board and School of Business Board of Governors. He recommends taking advantage of every opportunity offered – from the MBA Association (Moye is VP of Affairs) to graduate assistantships (Moye worked with School of Business Dean Alan Shao).

Moye says, “I will know I’ve made it when I have great seats at the TD Arena to support the College of Charleston Cougars, and when I am able to come back and advise and mentor future business students.”
