I am planning to apply for PhD in Organizational Behaviour in U.S. Does anyone know if U.S. business schools prefer GMAT or GRE for PhD in OB? I checked out several U.S. schools' admission requirements but none of them stated that they have such a preference for PhD in OB. Yet, my friend who was applying for PhD in Marketing was told by an American Business school that they prefer GMAT.

Hello rashisonal26


What Marketing department prefers doesn't concern you at all. :idea:


Usually, schools do accept either GRE or GMAT for PhD in Business related fields.

Sometimes they do have preference for one test over another and state that on website, but still do accept them both.

Sometimes, but rather rare, for particular department they accept one but not another, again that will be stated on website.

Preference actually doesn't mean much, it just means that people from admission committee are used more to one of the tests in past, however there is conversion table available, so both test scores can be compared very easily.

What is actually important to you if both test are accepted for your desired schools, is to decide which one suits you better.


I personally prefer GMAT over GRE, to me GMAT is more business related test, doesn't bother me with learning 1000 relatively obscure words for vocabulary part, I like doing math by hand, I really do like doing CR part etc.

I am into Finance so GMAT test makes more sense to me.

For Organizational Behavior as more social science could actually be other way around, or your personal preference maybe different than mine, maybe you like GRE more, having calculator option available etc.


You should take both mocks (GRE and GMAT) if you already didn't and decide for yourself, again if both are equally accepted for your targets.


I dont know you application list, but here I am going to test randomly for few known universities :

Stern accepts both equally:

Berkeley accepts both, prefers GRE
https://haas.berkeley.edu/phd/admissions/faq/

UCLA accepts both, recommends GRE
http://www.anderson.ucla.edu/degrees/ph ... ssions-faq

Columbia doesnt care which one you take
https://www8.gsb.columbia.edu/programs/ ... ments#gmat

MIT again accepts both
https://mitsloan.mit.edu/phd/admissions ... quirements

Finally, for instance Stanford accepts GRE only for your department of Organizational Behavior

Good Luck with application and standardized testing :geek: :cool:
