Why take the Executive Assessment?
The EA is a standardized test introduced in 2016 by Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC) for the more experienced candidates in mind. We understand that as a busy working professional, you are juggling career, family and other commitments at the same time, leaving you very little time to prepare for a test. That is why the EA is designed to assess the core skills and aptitude that you have gained from your career experience required to excel in the PMBA programme. Through the process of preparing and taking the test, candidates are ready for the rigours of the classroom. It also signals that you value learning and acquiring new skills, which are important indicators to the school of your commitment and readiness for the programme.
Preparing for the Executive Assessment
The EA evaluates candidates on higher-order reasoning via three sections: Integrated Reasoning (IR), Verbal Reasoning (VR) and Quantitative Reasoning (QR). It is a highly valid and reliable test, with higher relevance to real-world skills, resulting in the quality of the cohort maintained. Below briefly summarises the EA:
