HBS joins a number of business schools accepting results from both tests
In so doing, HBS joins a number of other business schools worldwide that now accept GRE scores in lieu of GMAT scores. These include Stanford GSB, MIT Sloan, INSEAD, IE, CEIBS, and Queen's (Canada).
The HBS admissions blog explained the decision: "We think that both tests will provide adequate metrics of what a standardized test can tell us about a candidate."
Harvard also announced that it will only accept scores from the internet-based versions of the TOEFL or IELTS tests for English as a foreign language.
