Smith School of Business: Where theory meets practice
The MBA program at Queen’s University’s Smith School of Business offers a personalized educational experience that was designed in close consultation with the business community, alumni, and faculty to create an innovative program tailored to their students’ educational needs.
Attracting the best and brightest from around the world
Located three hours east of Toronto, Canada, in-person interviews were not feasible and paper applications did not provide the admissions team with a strong sense of a candidate’s personality and potential.
Kira adds depth to admissions
Kira provides the Smith MBA admissions team with a better way to assess their cohort. Instead of spending over an hour per candidate in live-video or in-person interviews, the team can more accurately identify the top candidates for further consideration and save weeks of time. Finally, as a direct result of using Kira, the school has seen a substantial rise in the quality of applicants.
Create a three-dimensional experience
By integrating Kira into the Smith MBA admissions process, each applicant was asked three questions from a batch of over 30 questions. The admissions team was then able to collaborate and compare each applicant based on their professional background, personality, and passion for the program. Using Kira the school has seen their applicant quality rise substantially.
