The GMAT is often the most daunting part of the MBA application process for many prospective applicants. It requires anywhere from 100-150 hours of study and sometimes multiple retakes and it can be difficult to find time to study. Recently, several great business schools have begun to accept the Executive Assessment in place of the GMAT.
Here's why we think you should take the Executive Assessment:
- It requires only 20-30 hours of study, a fraction of what you'd need for the GMAT. In fact, a recent Columbia MBA successful admit reported not having to study for it at all and still getting a great score
- The exam is only 90 minutes long, compared to the 3hour GMAT
- It values your real-world work experience
- It is accepted by some amazing full-time MBA programs e.g. Simon, Vanderbilt and Georgetown
