In accordance with this, GMAC.org has closed a lot of GMAT testing centers in the United States and no one knows when they'll reopen. For individuals applying to MBA and EMBA program and studying for or thinking about taking the Executive Assessment exam, you were living in uncertain times. However, GMAC has now followed in ETS's footsteps (they recently introduced an "at home GRE" exam) by offering an interim online EA exam in additional to the at-home GMAT exam they already announced, starting at the end of April for markets impacted by COVID-19.

We are all experiencing many changes to daily life due to COVID-19. GMAC.org has prudently closed many GMAT testing centers across the country with an unclear timeline for reopening them. For those of you applying to business school and studying for the GMAT, and in particular if you had a scheduled GMAT test date, you were in limbo. But today, in response to this "new normal", GMAC has followed ETS's (they recently introduced an "at home GRE" exam) lead by temporarily offering an interim online GMAT exam, beginning mid-April in impacted markets excluding mainland China.

Executive Assessment (EA) Exam vs. GMAT: Pros, Cons, and Considerations

Posted by Mark Skoskiewicz on Mon, Jul 15, 2019 @ 09:00 AM

If you are targeting EMBA programs, the Executive Assessment exam may be your best option.

Executive MBA (EMBA) programs are for experienced professionals looking to earn an MBA without taking a full two years off. Traditional or part-time MBA programs are generally for less experienced, typically younger professionals. They can be structured as full-time one or two-year programs, or as part-time programs that take 3-5 years to complete. But when it comes to considering whether to take the Executive Assessment exam or the GMAT, you only have a choice if you are considering an EMBA program. Full time MBA programs require the GMAT or GRE (although some less selective programs don’t require an entrance exam at all).
