Language proficiency can decide your ticket to MBA

All MBA Aspirants note that language proficiency is a must to crack CAT, XAT, MATIBSAT, NMAT, IIFT and CMAT Exams. Hence, it is essential for you to understand in depth of language skills and adapt them also.

Language is an inevitable part of our lives. Its primary job is to aid communication but it is a lot more than that. Language pervades all aspects of our lives, so much so, that almost all the entrance exams for various professional courses test language skills of the candidates to ensure whether the candidate has the requisite language skills that are essential to meet the challenges of the global world.

MBA, in particular, tests the candidate’s language skills. The course is meant to train students to be ready to meet the challenges of the world. The world of today, clearly, is more inter- connected than ever before and one of the things that connects the world is language, in most cases English. So, businesses, too, are going global and hence, require executives and managers who possess good language skills.

1. Significance of language proficiency

It won’t be wrong to say that language makes a man. Without language, a person will become incapacitated and wouldn’t be able to express his/ her thoughts effectively. Language proficiency refers to excelling in the language, being able to read and write the language impressively, knowing the basics of the language, all in all, being fluent in the language. A person with excellent command over a language will make an instant impression on people he/ she comes in contact with. Since, a person proficient in a language will use the language as it is meant to be used, rather than the several variations a language takes over time and in the hands of different communities, such a person will be greatly valued wherever he/ she goes.

2. Verbal ability

Given the changing scenario, verbal ability has become an integral component of entrance exams today. All MBA entrances, be it CAT, XAT, GMAT, IBSAT, NMAT, IIFT and others give prominent weightage to the verbal ability section, to the extent, that it can either break or make a candidate’s chances of clearing the entrance. Verbal ability section comprises questions on sentence correction, vocabulary, comprehension, grammar and so on, therefore, it is crucial for candidates to brush up their language skills.


3. Interviews

After clearing the entrance exam, of which verbal ability is a crucial section, a candidate moves on to the next rounds which may comprise group discussion and interviews. An interview, in particular, presents a formidable challenge to aspirants as it’s difficult to hide one’s flaws in a face to face interactions. An aspirant who lacks good command over language, will rarely win over the panel, despite knowing enough. On the other hand, an aspirant who speaks well will instantly create an impression on the panel and stand a good chance of making it through. This is primarily because the demands of a course, such as MBA, requires one to be confident and assertive speakers with clarity of thought, that again comes across better with superior language skills.

Language is an enabling as well as a disabling factor. Those who are proficient in it, march ahead confidently, whereas, those who are not, start off with a huge disadvantage.
