This research uses modeling to predict academic performance in upper level business core course and overall grade point average performance at Walnut U and identify the factors that affect this performance. The results of the regressions conducted found that students’ previous academic performance is a large predictor of individual course performance and overall performance. The race variable was unable to predict a student’s performance, neither could major when the student was a business major. Students with majors outside of business were predicted to have a lower course grade at Walnut U. This study will need to be expanded in the future to look at more courses and a larger group of students to confirm the results found at this time.
