Where Kira fits in the undergraduate admissions process
These time savings are why all of these undergraduate programs transitioned existing interviews onto the Kira Platform — and why 57% are now able to gather deeper insights about all of their applicants without overwhelming their admissions team
“We interview around 1000 students per cycle. Coordinating in-person interviews at that scale is a massive undertaking. At the end of the day, we are making better use of our time and resources using the Kira Talent platform.”
- Renato Guimarães Ferreira, Program Director at Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Business Administration School in São Paulo (FGV EAESP)
For another 15% of schools, Kira's on-demand assessment allowed admissions teams to meet and assess international applicants regardless of time zones or schedules.
