The Executive Assessment or the GMAT is a mandatory part of the application process for the EMBA-Global Americas and Europe programme. These tests have been developed as a diagnostic to assess your readiness for study, and they support your overall application as it helps us to understand your exceptional strengths and areas to focus on to get the best from your studies.
We find that more and more EMBA-Global applicants are choosing to take the EA test, due to the shortness of the test (90 minutes in duration) and the ease of preparing for this test – it is considered less arduous to prepare for the EA than the GMAT!
However, we do understand that taking the test is one of the more time consuming parts of the application process, which is why we advise that you start preparing for this test as soon as possible. You can book your test, at a test centre near you, here.
We have a number of resources to help you prepare for this test; this includes a series of events this October, which will allow you to find out more about the test and how to prepare.
- 27th October – EA Masterclass delivered by Manhattan Prep at the London Business School campus. Please get in touch with the Recruitment Team with a copy of your CV to register for this event.
- 31st October – GMAT vs EA webinar: Choosing the right test for your skill set. Delivered alongside Manhattan prep. Please register on the website.
The next application deadline for the May 2019 class takes place on the 13th November. If you plan to apply for this deadline, you will need an EA/GMAT score before you apply, so it is advisable that you take this test ASAP.
If you have any questions about the EMBA-Global programme or application process please get in touch with the Recruitment Team, we would be happy to answer any questions you have via phone, email or during a meeting at our London campus.
