New Executive Assessment Alternative to GMAT and GRE – Good or Bad News?

You may have heard that GMAC, the organization responsible for the GMAT, recently announced that it is has designed a new standardized test made specifically for EMBA candidates – “seasoned professionals” who want to go to business school but are so busy with their careers they cannot easily take time to study for an exam like the GMAT, which can necessitate months of preparation.

GMAC indicates that, “Because it was designed for busy professionals, the assessment includes just three short 30-minute sections with a total of 40 questions…. The assessment focuses on the skills that are critical both at work and in an EMBA program: higher order reasoning, critical thinking, analysis, and problem-solving. The assessment requires a modest level of preparation.”

GMAC reports that it worked alongside top business schools to design this new assessment. Candidates are able to take the 90-minute test year-round at test centers in approximately 600 locations. Candidates can only take the exam two times, so if you don’t like your first score, make sure to study hard the second time around. The results remain valid for five years.

To date, the top business schools that are accepting the Executive Assessment for their main EMBA programs include Columbia Business School, Chicago Booth, London Business School and INSEAD.

Is the introduction of this new assessment good news or bad news for EMBA candidates? For those EMBA candidates applying to top EMBA programs that require the GMAT or GRE, this is great news! This is an exam intended to require less preparation time and with minimal preparation relative to the GMAT and GRE, you may be able to get a great score.

But the introduction of this new exam will likely tempt those top EMBA programs that currently don’t require a standardized test – like MIT, Kellogg, Cornell, USC and New York University – to consider requiring it. That is bad news for all of you who were looking at those programs with excitement, knowing you did not have to take the GMAT or GRE! But these schools have not yet required it, so don’t fixate too much on that prospect.
