Wits Business School Admission
Please note: only shortlisted candidates will be invited to write the WBS Admissions test.
Applicants are requested to read the following information with care. Tests are used in the selection process because research shows a correlation between success in the tests and on the programmes. However, the test results form only a part of the criteria for candidate selection.
Applicants for the MBA may sit one of three admissions tests. The GMAT, NMAT or the WBS Admission Test. Applicants are advised to take the WBS Admission Test unless they wish to apply to multiple business schools, in which case they should take the GMAT or NMAT (details of these tests may be found on the www.gmat.com or nmat.org.in/africa). Applicants are advised that both the GMAT and the NMAT require extensive preparation, whereas the WBS Admission Test does not.
