USB accepts the SHL or GMAT selection test. Both tests are recognised internationally. Contact USB to arrange to do the SHL online or contact GMAT at


The SHL consists of a verbal critical reasoning assessment, numerical critical reasoning assessment, inductive reasoning test and the Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ) on behavioural preferences. 

  • When and where: The SHL test is done online from wherever you have internet access. Once you have paid your SHL fees, you will be sent a link to do the test. To arrange this, please send e-mail to .
  • Cost: R3 150 (2018). Please note: You can only take the SHL test once you have started your electronic MBA application process, because you will need a provisional student number for payments and for SHL reports (which will be linked to your electronic application). The total therefore is R5 050 (R3 150 SHL test + R1 900 MBA application fee). Please see bank details below and use your provisional student number as reference.
