Parts 1 & 2 will take place in written form, while part 3 will be conducted as an interview or discussion (depending on the number of participants).

How do I prepare myself for the test?


With this test, we intend to assess your current capability of the english language and if your language abilities will be sufficient to follow the lectures of our MBA-Programme.
