Masters of Business Administration (MBA)

The question patterns of the admission tests for IBA, DU (EMBA), NSU, MIST and BIBM are very similar.
These examinations test the students on the skills of basic English and Mathematics. Testing questions
on students’ General Knowledge and Analytical Ability are also present in some cases.

The English section contains questions on Basic Grammar, Vocabulary, Word Analogy, Reading
Comprehension and Essay writing. Most questions in this segment follow the format and standard of the
internationally popular English Proficiency tests, e. g. GMAT, GRE and TOEFL.

In the Mathematics section of these admission exams, questions on basic Algebra, Arithmetic, and basic
Geometry, following the standard and content of SSC and GMAT (Reasoning Test), appear.

Questions on the students’ Analytical Ability are similar to that of former GMAT & GRE examinations.
These questions test the students’ capabilities of reasoning and manipulating paradoxical situations that
have practical or life-like contexts.
