At Chicago Booth, we care about the student experience—and being prepared to hit the ground running can have a tremendous impact on the return of your investment. Our Executive MBA Program is academically rigorous and our goal is to admit students who have the skills, aptitude, and motivation to thrive in a dynamic learning environment.
As part of the admissions process, all applicants to the Executive MBA Program are required to submit scores from one of three standardized tests: Executive Assessment, GMAT, or GRE. Importantly, there is no minimum score requirement for admission to the program. These scores represent just one of several criteria we use to make an admissions decision. We evaluate your entire application and do not base admissions decisions on any single criteria.
If you have questions about your current test score or our test requirements, or need help with selecting a test, please reach out to your local admissions office to discuss. We’d be pleased to offer you some personalized feedback.
The Executive Assessment test has been developed specifically for Executive MBA applicants by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). Chicago Booth partnered with GMAC and five other leading Executive MBA programs to pioneer the Executive Assessment.
If you haven't already taken a test, we recommend that you select the Executive Assessment. It is the most suitable option for Executive MBA candidates based on length, content, and preparation time. Although the Executive Assessment is more streamlined than the GMAT, it still requires substantial preparation time. Get ready to take the Executive Assessment »
