Chapter 10: MBA Admission Criteria and an Entrepreneurial Mind-Set: Evidence from "Western" Style MBAs in India and Thailand
AbstractWe 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.
