Students who want to join the London Business School's MBA programmes in London and Dubai can now use the Cambridge English Advanced exam to prove that they have the language skills they need for success in post-graduate study at this prestigious school.
The exam, set by a department of Cambridge University, is more than just a "snapshot" of a student's English. It is a high level test aimed at people who want to use English in academic or professional life. It is available in 130 countries and recognised by more than 3,000 universities, employers and government agencies worldwide, including many top Business Schools.
Nicola Johnson, Development Manager at Cambridge Assessment English said: "London Business School consistently ranks in the top 10 business schools worldwide, and recognising Cambridge English Advanced will give them access to hundreds of thousands of students who have proved that they have a really high level of English and know how to use it in an academic context. Unlike other tests, Cambridge English Advanced focuses entirely on high-level language skills, to give a really in-depth assessment."
"As universities become more and more international, there is a real need to make sure that everyone taking part in a programme has the language skills they need, not just the ability to deal with academic texts. They need to be able to communicate effectively in the study environment and in social contexts, and to have the experience and confidence to use English in any situation. Cambridge English Advanced is designed specifically to meet this need."
Celebrating its centenary year, Cambridge Assessment English is the world’s leading provider of language assessment for learners and teachers of English, with over four million candidates a year in 130 countries. It is a part of the world-renowned University of Cambridge, which is regularly placed No. 1 in rankings of the world’s universities.
