From March 2016 onwards, London Business School will be looking at a new way of assessing candidates for our Executive MBA programme. We know that applicants for Executive MBA programmes are busy, and that for most candidates the GMAT represents a daunting challenge not just in terms of the test itself, but also in the preparation before taking it. This is why London Business School, along with five other top-tier Executive MBA Schools spread throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, has begun accepting the new Executive Assessment for admission to the Executive MBA programme.

What makes the Executive Assessment a great tool for both Business Schools and Executive MBA candidates is its relevance. It is relevant to executives in terms of its content (much more focus on critical thinking, analysis and problem solving, much less on pure mathematics and grammatical structures), and in the amount of time needed for the test. There is no preparation required, and the test is over in 90 minutes.

This is a fantastic tool that is as much about the candidates’ needs as it is about our need to assess candidates. Like the GMAT, the Executive Assessment offers you the chance for a full diagnostic and to assess your own readiness to undertake an Executive MBA programme. What’s different now is that there is no need to invest more of your time than should be necessary to show us in the Executive MBA admissions team that you are ready for the challenge.

What score should I aim for?

One of the obvious challenges with a new assessment and a new scoring system is knowing what score you should be aiming for. This is a difficult question to answer. As it is a brand new test there are no test takers before 3 March 2016 and so percentile scores can’t be generated. Percentiles reflect a test taker’s position amongst all other test takers, so we won’t have percentile targets until enough data has been generated. We know from GMAC where the Executive Assessment scores will correlate with GMAT scores, but this is a slightly imperfect method as the Executive Assessment is an entirely different tool. It is many things, but it is certainly not another version of GMAT.

Our best advice to you is to aim to do your best. The Executive Assessment requires minimal preparation mostly because it’s a great diagnostic tool that shows what your abilities are. This is much more about decision making than the GMAT, so your actual ability will be what drives your results. Going in with a clear mind and a positive attitude will give you the best chance to deliver a score that shows us why we should admit you to the programme.

We’re excited about this. The Executive Assessment really is a great new way to look at admissions for executives and gives you back some of that most valuable of commodities – your time.
