Posted by Graduate Management Admission Council on Nov 19, 2019 7:00:00 AM

An Executive MBA (EMBA) can open the way to more rapid career progression. In fact, our own research shows that 89% of EMBA alumni say that the skills they developed in business school advanced their careers.

The Executive Assessment is an important step in applying to many EMBA and other graduate business school programs. However, if you’re considering taking the Executive Assessment, you may be concerned about the registration process. You may even wonder how long registering takes and how hard it is to find a test center.

Fortunately, registering for the Executive Assessment is quick and convenient. Even if you have a hectic schedule, you can find time to schedule your appointment. Here are three things you should know about registering.

1. Scheduling the Executive Assessment is easy

If you are a busy professional, you might not have much free time to travel hours out of your way to sit a graduate business school assessment. Fortunately, with hundreds of test centers located all over the world, scheduling the Executive Assessment is easy. Through the online portal, you can easily choose your test center, and the date and time for your assessment when you register.

Because the Executive Assessment takes just 90 minutes to complete, it’s also easier to fit into a busy schedule. As Skip with the Darden Executive Program says, “When I found out it was an hour and a half and I could schedule it whenever I wanted to, after work, before work, on weekends, that was a huge benefit for me just with my job and a lot of travels. [...] I was able to take it here in D.C. at just a testing center, and, you know, it was about an hour and a half later I was done and had my score.”

2. Managing your appointment can be done easily online

One of the most convenient aspects of registering for the Executive Assessment exam is that it can be done entirely online. Get started creating an account by providing some basic information and from there you can schedule and manage your appointment. If you need to reschedule your assessment, you can also do so online and for free so long as it is 48 hours or more before your appointment. You can also pay your assessment fees online using your debit or credit card.

3. We make sending your results to your desired schools easy

The Executive Assessment is one of the executive business program requirements for admission at a growing number of business schools, and you will want to ensure your desired school gets your results. Again, this step is easy. During the registration process, you can choose the programs that will receive your results and you can add programs right up until the assessment begins. Doing so means you don’t have to worry about sending the results yourself.

However, if you haven’t yet decided which programs you want to apply to when you take the assessment, that is fine too. You can still take the executive assessment and then submit your results yourself afterward directly to your desired schools.
