Wharton EMBA Accepts Executive Assessment Exam Instead of GMAT – Big News!!


GMAC, the organization responsible for the GMAT, recently designed and released a new standardized test made specifically for EMBA candidates who want to advance their knowledge and skills through a top EMBA program but are usually so busy with demanding careers and family obligations that they cannot easily take time to study for an exam like the GMAT or the GRE. Top EMBA programs have noticed over the years that outstanding candidates would often present GMAT scores in the 600s, and that the scores did not reflect the abilities of the candidate nor their ability to succeed in the program. In short, the GMAT and GRE were very inadequate tools for assessing proficiency or ability to handle the quantitative parts of the EMBA program. Nevertheless, Wharton continued to require the GMAT or GRE, which was a considerable deterrent to applicants, many of whom simply explored other programs that would not require them to take those standardized tests.

Wharton’s choice to accept the Executive Assessment exam instead of the GMAT or GRE is rather momentous, because now one major factor that was deterring applicants and even encouraging them to look at other programs such as those of MIT, NYU and Columbia, is now eradicated.

This is great news for those of you who had thought you would not even entertain the Wharton EMBA program because of the GMAT/GRE requirement. You should find that the Executive Assessment exam requires far less preparation time relative to the GMAT and GRE, so with much less effort you may be able to get a great score.

Is there a downside?

Yes. This news also means that the number of applicants to the Wharton EMBA will likely go up. So prepare your application with care to ensure you can compete in what might likely be a larger and more competitive application pool.
