More Top-Ranked M.B.A. Programs Now Accept GRE
By: Robert Morse
A growing number of M.B.A. programs are now accepting the Graduate Record Exam or GRE for admissions. This new trend gives prospective M.B.A. students more testing options, because almost all M.B.A. programs only accepted the Graduate Management Admission Test or GMAT for admission. One key reason why M.B.A. programs are adding the GRE as a testing option is it enables them to broaden their applicant pool and get more potential students to consider going to B-school.
U.S. News has just published a list of which M.B.A. programs are currently accepting the GRE for admissions based on data collected through early January.
Of the 433 M.B.A. programs that U.S. News surveyed for the latest America's Best Business Schools rankings, 115 of them—nearly 27 percent are currently accepting the GRE test for admissions.
