Why Take The Executive Assessment?

Pursuing an EMBA program requires you to pass either the GMAT or Executive Assessment (EA). In comparison, both the GMAT and EA are fundamentally similar. However, there is a difference in depth of preparation and time to complete. Hence, if you are a busy professional, you might want to take the EA instead.

The EA has a shorter completion time – 90-mins vs 3.5-hours. Additionally, EA scores are also highly correlated to performance in the EMBA. However, the EA is subjected to admission requirements of different schools.
