Entrance tests in April in the UAE

IIPM will hold its admission test - the E-PAT or Entrepreneurship and Planning Admission Test in April in the UAE.

Selection will be based on the written test, a group discussion and interview.

Unlike the Common Admission Test (CAT), the E-PAT is based more on parameters pertaining to EQ or the Emotional Quotient and overall personality mapping since it has been globally observed that high IQ often takes a backseat to high EQ when it comes to entrepreneurship and management.

  • Date: January 18, 2007
  • Time: 6 to 8pm
  • Venue: Onyx Pearl Emerald Room, Novotel Hotel, Dubai

The seminar will cover:
- Global careers in Business and Management
- The IIPM undergraduate programme – A headstart on careers
- Question and Answer Session
