New test to be tailored specifically to EMBA candidates

INSEAD has recently announced plans to deploy a new in-house EMBA admissions test, which potential EMBA candidates can take as an alternative to the GMAT.

According to the INSEAD website, the new test, which is set to launch in February, is specifically designed for the "seniority and global nature" of the EMBA applicant pool. It will be similar to the standard GMAT test, with a notable exception: instead of an essay writing section, there will be a case study analysis to be presented orally.

Some other differences between the new admissions test and the GMAT include "eliminating elements such as knowledge of mathematical rules from trigonometry and permutation, esoteric vocabulary not relevant for conducting global business, and rules of English grammar typically studied in middle school in the Anglo-Saxon education system."

The test will be administered regularly starting in February on all INSEAD campuses (Fontainebleau, Singapore, and Abu Dhabi.)
