Studying an MBA abroad increases the employability of an executive. It is important to strengthen knowledge in languages
Obtaining an MBA abroad means a salary increase and professional development for an executive, which is why more and more are the ones who decide on these specializations. However, it is necessary to have certain knowledge and certifications to be able to aspire to enter the program in a prestigious university.
According to an Education First study, one of the most important requirements is the mastery of at least one language. “The most important universities require candidates for an MBA to speak at least English, which is one of the most talked about and indispensable in business. In Peru, only 38% of executives manage an advanced level of English, “said Valeria Terry, product manager for academic programs at Education First.
For the manager, the first step is to strengthen the knowledge in the language. “At EF we offer courses of 6, 9 or 11 months that reinforce in English for daily and professional speech with elective courses according to the sector of work. This favors the students because if a person has a second or third language, he could increase his salary by up to 37% “, says the executive.
To access an MBA in a foreign university, it is necessary to have certifications in languages according to the place to which it is postule. Terry listed some of the exams that need to be approved for a postgraduate study abroad:
• TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language): Requirement for admission to a North American university, necessary in more than 6000 universities. It is necessary not only to obtain academic degrees and to make exchanges abroad, but also to obtain Visas.
• IELTS (International English Language Testing System): Certification required to enter a university in the UK, Australia, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa.
Also, another requirement is to obtain certifications of knowledge valid abroad that accompany the candidate’s application. The EF Master Pre and MBA prep programs offer preparation to pass and pass the following exams:
• GRE (Graduate Examination Exam): General knowledge test required to enter US postgraduate courses. It aims to evaluate knowledge in verbal and quantitative reasoning.
• GMAT (Graduate Management Admissions): A standard test that measures knowledge in mathematics, language and analytical writing.
The command of English is an indispensable requirement. We live in a globalized world and companies must have executives who speak the language that is used for business, says the expert.
