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.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
