More MBA Schools accepting GRE now
The Educational Testing Service (ETS) has announced that the GRE General Test, the world’s widely accepted graduate admissions test, is now accepted by more than 500 business schools worldwide for their MBA programmes.
In the last four years, the number of business schools accepting the GRE General Test for MBA admissions has quadrupled.
“For business schools around the world, accepting GRE scores means expanding their pool of applicants and gaining more diversity in their programmes,” said David Payne.
With the recent addition of the University of Missouri, Temple University, Case Western Reserve University, and the University of Oklahoma, the GRE General Test is now accepted by 52 per cent of the U.S. News & World Report’s top 100 U.S. programmes.
International additions include INSEAD, Central European University Business School and Caucasus University.
The growing number of business schools worldwide accepting GRE scores comes at a time of increasing excitement for the introduction of the GRE revised General Test. Launching August 2011, the GRE revised General Test offers many benefits to test takers and institutions.
A friendlier test – taking experience, new questions that emphasize real – world scenarios and new test design features are just some of the changes test takers can expect.
