Montpellier Business School is an international school with global ambitions. To test English during admissions, the school has chosen Easyspeaking online tests.
CHALLENGES Simplify the admissions process and provide students with a fair and equal language test
Montpellier Business School is a member of the French Grandes Ecoles conference and holds the prestigious and internationally recognized AACSB, EFMD-EPAS and AMBA accreditations. This makes it one of the many French higher education institutions with an international focus. Its Grande Ecole and bachelor programs are delivered at the student’s choice in French or English, its 15 masters of science programs are taught in English and more than 60% of the institution’s professors are international with over 1,000 international students studying on the Montpellier campus. In addition, the institution has a global network of over 170 partner universities. This makes English proficiency critical for successfully completing many of its degree programs.
Prospective students are asked to specify their English level in their application (score from one of the traditional tests or a B2 level according to the CEFR). However,these tests are costly for families and not everyone has the financial resources for this, in addition to application fees. Not to mention other tests that some schools require, such as personality tests or GMAT-type logic tests. This means the first obstacle to applying to a school is money. To avoid losing great students for this reason, Montpellier Business School chose to have a common English test for all students.
