By Elena Aldea, Recruitment and Admissions Officer, Leadership Programmes
Leadership programmes use an assessment platform as part of the holistic evaluation process – Kira Talent assessment. This is now included in the admissions process and will have to be completed before the official interview with one of the members of the Committee or alumni. The answers and results from the assessment will be taken into consideration along with the interview feedback and application itself when taking a final decision on the applicant’s candidacy.
Let’s have a look in more depth at the format and technical side of this assessment:
Kira Talent Assessment
Kira consists of three questions pre-recorded by our team members, whose aim is to assess our essential traits – leadership, openness, and resilience. It will add value to your standard application and will enable us to get a sense of your personality and potential.
Once the question is displayed on the screen, you have one minute of preparation, after which the platform will start recording your answer. Then, you have two minutes and a half to deliver each answer, therefore make sure you use the prep time wisely to plan your thoughts.
The assessment will take approximately 20 minutes, including the two practice questions at the beginning. As it is audio and video recorded, we would advise you to choose a quiet place, without anything around that could disturb your attention.
