Individual interview:

Montpellier Business School’s individual interview uses the HAY Management method, which helps the selection board to identify the personal characteristics of applicants and their potential as future managers. The questions asked by members of the board aim to gradually deepen their knowledge of applicants and, among other aspects, assess their ability to anticipate, adapt and integrate, as well as their individual inquisitiveness and open-mindedness.

English language test:

The English language test  consists of the preparation of a text covering general or socio-economic topics. The interview focuses on understanding and analysing the text in order to broaden the discussion, particularly concerning the culture of the country.
