Want to Maximize Your Return on Hiring a GMAT Tutor? Study the Basics on Your Own

Posted by Mark Skoskiewicz on Thu, May 14, 2020 @ 01:22 PM

We believe investing in GMAT tutoring is an easy decision for a student who really struggles with standardized tests and is performing well below average on practice tests. But if you are an above average test taker and trying to understand how to get a 700 score or higher on the GMAT exam, a private tutor is also a good option. In either case, the return on investment in GMAT prep can be very high, because sitting in a test prep class or using an app designed for the “average” test taker is not relevant for you. Customized 1-1 help tailored to your situation is likely required for you to see score improvement.

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).
