Executive Assessment an Option for Working Professionals

Working professionals interested in applying to the nationally-ranked Evening MBA program have the option to complete the Executive Assessment (EA) to fulfill the program’s standardized test admission requirement. Applicants with at least five years of full-time career experience can choose to take the EA in lieu of completing the GMAT or GRE exam.

Requiring modest preparation compared to the GMAT, the EA is 90 minutes long and offers convenient scheduling options. Evaluating an MBA candidate’s business school readiness, as well as the knowledge and real-world experience they have garnered, the EA tests verbal, quantitative, and integrated reasoning skills---categories similar to the GMAT. Prospective candidates can use the assessment findings to further sharpen their skills before beginning their MBA program.

About the Executive Assessment

The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), owner and administer of the GMAT exam, collaborated with selective business programs around the world to identify parameters for the Executive Assessment. An integral part of the EA development process included GMAC surveying hundreds of career professionals to ensure the assessment was relevant, brief, and provided an accurate portrayal of a professional’s business skills and acumen in a flexible, easy to use format.
