The Entrance Exam (IE Admissions Test/GMAT/GRE) is one of the requirements of the admissions process for the International MBA program.  Only one exam is required, however, should a candidate sit the IE Admissions Test and also have the GMAT or GRE, it is recommended to present the additional exam.

The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) has recently been accepted by hundreds of business schools in the US, Europe and Asia. Many students struggle to decide which test they should take given that both tests are accepted by most business schools, however, The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) remains the most popular test. Taking the GMAT or GRE can be time consuming due to the level of preparation required and it might not by feasible for all candidates given their professional and personal commitments. At IE Business School we have developed our own admissions test, offering applicants an alternative to both the GMAT and GRE. The IE Admissions Test is divided into three parts: 1) Verbal, 2) Numerical and 3) Diagrammatical – it’s different to the GMAT and GRE in its practical approach and given that students cannot prepare for it.
