A Japanese university sought to improve their process for admitting students into their Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelor of Social Sciences
(BSocSc) degrees. Their system for screening and admitting students required a considerable amount of time and effort from staff and they needed a more
efficient method to screen students.

To improve the university’s selection process, TalentLens conducted a validation study using the Watson-Glaser-III and Core Abilities Assessments. This study examined how well the two assessments correlated with student grades in the two degrees.
