MBA Admission Criteria and an Entrepreneurial Mind-Set: Evidence From "Western" Style MBAs in India and Thailand
Shepherd, Dean, Douglas, Evan J., & Fitzsimmons, Jason R. (2008) MBA Admission Criteria and an Entrepreneurial Mind-Set: Evidence From "Western" Style MBAs in India and Thailand. Academy of Management Learning & Education, 7(2), pp. 158-172.
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 may discriminate against applicants with a greater propensity to behave entrepreneurally.
