Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


The authors report relations between entrance criteria and study success in a program for a master of science in business. Based on the admission criteria broadly used in european business schools and the findings of prior research, the present authors measured eight criteria for study success in the master's degree program. The authors applied the following criteria: verbal, quantitative, and analytical writing skills; prior knowledge; adjustment to college; social adjustment; personal-emotional adjustment; and attachment. Results revealed that a combination of verbal skills, prior knowledge, academic adjustment, and attachment best predicted study success.
