We investigate the assessments of career attractiveness by 283 MBA students from India and Thailand, to use GMAT and work experience to explain variance in mind-sets that have previously been associated with successful managers. The fast-moving global economy requires managers to have an entrepreneurial mind-set, yet we find that MBA students with higher GMAT scores have career mind-sets that are more averse to work effort and to risk, and therefore, the GMAT may discriminate against applicants with a greater propensity to behave entepreneurially.
