All MBA applicants have to write a selection test - either the SHL or the GMAT selection test. Both tests measure language skills, verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning and learning potential. Both tests are recognised internationally. (The SHL selection test is the preferred option for most students who hold a degree recognised by Stellenbosch University.)
