Entry exams for MBA and MBL compulsory

Students applying for the MBA and MBL programmes must complete the NMAT (by GMAC™) entry exam as one of the admission requirements for the two programmes. 

The NMAT is an exciting newly developed exam that focusses specifically on the African continent.  The test offers the potential student an opportunity to measure his or her preparedness for the SBL’s master’s programmes. The exam will provide SBL with an additional tool to select students for these two highly sought after programmes.  It also provides the student with a foundation to build on and eventually succeed in attaining these degrees.


An important feature of the NMAT is that it offers the opportunity for students to practice before writing the final exam.  Students are encouraged to practice at least 90 hours beforehand to prepare for the final exam. 

The NMAT exam is a computer based, multiple choice test with three sections – Language Skills, Quantitative Skills and Logical Reasoning.
