If you have not yet taken the GMAT test, we encourage you to consider the Executive Assessment offered in 600 GMAT test centres worldwide. This has been developed by a consortium of top tier schools to assess your study-readiness. It is designed to be taken with minimal preparation, and reflecting the pressures on busy executives, it is 90 minutes in duration.

Candidates must have completed all the requirements before an offer can be made.

As you begin discussing your development plans with your employer, be sure to read our advice on Creating a Business Case. This document will help you build a case for your employer's support, either financial or time away from the office.

Build your case for support

Having the support of your employer is essential. Support may take the form of time out of the office or it may be financial. To secure either you need to compose a detailed business case outlining your reasons for wanting to take part in EMBA-Global Americas & Europe, and the benefits it will bring you and your company.
