The retention and graduation rates of the Carlson School Undergraduate Program saw increases in 2012. The school’s retention rate went up from 96.2 percent to 97.87 percent, which is the theoretical maximum for the school, says Undergraduate Program Assistant Dean Mary Maus Kosir. “Much of that is due to the amazing first-year advising services we offer to our students, not to mention our outstanding Welcome Week, orientation, and the day-to-day community building each and every one of us are a part of.”
Four-year graduation rates in the program increased from 74.3 percent to 78.74 percent. “This is outstanding, particularly given the fact that this class was the first to graduate under the international experience requirement,” Kosir says.
