With the abundance of MBA programs in the United States, your program needs a competitive advantage to attract the best graduate students.

What if your MBA program could set itself apart by: 

  • Scientifically measuring each student’s influence potential? 
  • Quantifying how well your MBA program is growing students’ leadership abilities through entrance and exit assessments?
  • Tailoring course and curriculum selection based upon empirical data?
  • Providing students personal assessment and guidance to increase their influence potential and become a better student?

Introducing the KII™ to your MBA Program will greatly expand the wealth of self-knowledge the student will use to engage, learn, and act on, as they comprehend the vast amount of information taught by professors at your institution.

The Keller Influence Indicator® (K-II™) tool is the only scientifically-validated assessment that measures influence potential by assessing the Seven Influence Traits™. 

Developed through extensive research and piloted at Clemson University’s School of Business Program, the KII™ assessment provides a current score of these vital influence traits:

  1. Confidence
  2. Commitment
  3. Courage
  4. Passion 
  5. Empowering
  6. Trustworthiness
  7. Likeability

Unlike personality or leadership style tests, which provide a general, static label of preferences, the KII™ provides a dynamic assessment of the current level of one’s influence potential. By providing each student an Influence Indicator score, their K-Factor™ score, upon entry into your MBA program, he or she will have a clear roadmap of traits in which they excel in or need growth. 

Because the Seven Influence Traits™ are dynamic, each can be developed. The MBA student can then work with their advisor to tailor their studies to address any deficiencies and increase strengths. Through repeated testing, progress in leadership and influence potential can be measured and tracked.

See How it Works

In crafting the syllabus for my MBA Business Communications course, influence was an important element in the course. I was unsure as to the best way to teach/discuss the subject. Dr. Keller's Influence Assessment was a terrific instrument to make the topic of influence more relevant, clear, and important to my students. She took the time to video conference into my class to explain the assessment tool and research behind the assessment. Her knowledge and passion for the topic of influence added a very credible and important element to my class.
