International experience is a key factor for most of the prominent business schools in choosing candidates during their MBA selection process. Students who have worked in countries apart from their own bring to the classroom a whole bunch of qualities - they bring cultural and social insights, understanding of business opportunities and challenges from across the globe, and a firm perspective on global issues. Such exposure certainly helps in having rich classroom discussion.

Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the argument?

a) With all other factors remaining the same, candidates with little or no international experience cannot contribute to business schools as much as candidates with international experience can.

b) Business schools prefer discussions on global business issues to discussions on domestic business issues.

c) Candidates with little or no international experience benefit a lot from business school discussions on international issues.

d) Candidates with international experience generally also bring to class leadership skills, wich are anoter important criterion in business school admissions.

e) Prominent business leaders as well as academicians acknowledge the importance of rich classroom discussions at business schools.

I too selected A. After seeing D as answer, I understood what argument tells.

International exposure is key factor in MBA selection process. how? Students with international exposure will have bunch of qualities such as X, Y,.... So rich classroom discussion.

A(International exposure) causes B(selected into MBA school).

Option A - tells about students with no international experience. we cannot guarantee this statement from the argument. Argument is talking about students with international experience. Also we cannot say that, Not A or Little A -- Not B

Option D - tells that international students also have qualities Z, which is again an added advantage for selection process. This strengthens that International exposure is a key factor.

all of those who'll attempt will be confused between A and D
So we shall use negation technique
Negating A will leave us with no difference
But negation D will weaken the conclusion
HENCE D IS CORRECT.

Hope this helps.

There is only one strong reason to reject A:

1. Person without an international exposure can also gain knowledge thru reading/media etc. " Cannot" is a very strong word.

As per the conclusion" International experience is a key factor for most of the prominent business schools in choosing candidates during their MBA selection process" , we need to find a strengthener that will fortify B school decision in selection . Option D does that & Hence the correct answer.

Out of all the options B and E can be neglected because they are out of scope.


a) With all other factors remaining the same, candidates with little or no international experience cannot contribute to business schools as much as candidates with international experience can.

A is a contender but it fails to fit into a scenario in which all students have international experience. So If all have international experience then as per A there need not be any effect. So Avoid A


c) Candidates with little or no international experience benefit a lot from business school discussions on international issues.

Same logic with A

d) Candidates with international experience generally also bring to class leadership skills, which are another important criterion in business school admissions.

Well this is the answer

Can anyone explain why not B?

Noted that pkm9995109794 said it was "out of scope", but was thinking that if business schools prefer global business discussions, and the given statement said international applicants bring a stronger perspective on global issues, then it would strengthen the argument that international experience is a key factor in admissions because it boosts the whole "rich classroom discussion" thing.

Thanks in advance for the help!

b) Business schools prefer discussions on global business issues to discussions on domestic business issues.

mhe801 option B is a passive strengthener, which means B is not projecting the unique trait which can strengthen the argument as D does.You need not have any international experience in order to "discuss" global business issues. You can just read a news paper and discuss those issues in the class. Hope you got the catch.

In my case, I tried to find a OA between A and D.
B. 'domestic business' issues is out of scope.
C. Candidates need international experience. This is almost assumption about this argument. So C is out.
E. Out of scope.
Acknowledgement of prominent business leaders is nothing in
this argument.
So left thing is onlt A and D.
A. This is so strong. We just want to strengthen about the advantage
of international experiences. How can someone say that
candidates with little or no international experience cannot
contribute to business school? If there is no D, I will choose this.
But there is D, I do not choose this.
D. This mentions about the advantage of international experiences.
'also brings to class leadership skills'
This can strenthen the reason why business school want to their
candidate about international experience.

To you, my friend, and other members,
Strangely, the source of this question cannot be found on the Internet. I used Google to search for the source; the result is negative. Test takers should only practice the gmat-like questions.

Negating A implies that candidates with no or less international exp can also contribute to business schools as much as international candidates.
This itself weakens the argument that international exp should be a key factor..isn't it? GMATNinja Please help to understand.

Premise : International experience is a key factor for most of the prominent business schools in choosing candidates during their MBA selection process. Students who have worked in countries apart from their own bring to the classroom a whole bunch of qualities - they bring cultural and social insights, understanding of business opportunities and challenges from across the globe, and a firm perspective on global issues.
Conclusion : Such exposure certainly helps in having rich classroom discussion.

Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the argument?

a) With all other factors remaining the same, candidates with little or no international experience cannot contribute to business schools as much as candidates with international experience can.
The statement is talking about the exposure of International candidates and the quality discussion they bring due to such exposure.. The stem is not discussing about the -ves of little or no international experience.


b) Business schools prefer discussions on global business issues to discussions on domestic business issues.
So even candidates with no international experience students can discuss on global business issues.. Not a big deal
c) Candidates with little or no international experience benefit a lot from business school discussions on international issues.
Its good they are benefiting, that's why everyone is there at the Bschool... Out of scope.

d) Candidates with international experience generally also bring to class leadership skills, wich are anoter important criterion in business school admissions.

it looks good, International candidates are bringing something extra to the class..
e) Prominent business leaders as well as academicians acknowledge the importance of rich classroom discussions at business schools.
Yes they acknowledge the rich classroom discussion.. So, how does it influence the difference between international exp and no international exp.
