Executive Assessment vs. GMAT for Business School Admissions

executive assessment vs gmat

We’ve been getting a lot of questions about the Executive Assessment (EA) recently, so we wanted to address them head-on.

If you're not familiar with the Executive Assessment, it's an entrance exam that is being accepted by more and more top business schools as an alternative to the GMAT / GRE in the admissions process. Many of the Top 20 MBA Programs worldwide now accept the Executive Assessment, and the list of partner schools is growing every month.

The Executive Assessment is similar to the GMAT in a lot of ways, but there are several important differences. We put together the following video to highlight some of those key differences and share insight that will help you determine which exam to take.

Watch it here:

As I mention at the beginning of this video, some schools still only accept the Executive Assessment for their Executive MBA (EMBA) or evening / part-time MBA programs. So Step 1 would be to double-check the application requirements of the school(s) you're applying to and see if the EA is even an option for you.

But if you find yourself in a situation where you can choose which exam to take, the information I share in the video above should enable you to make an informed decision about whether to prepare for the Executive Assessment or the GMAT.
