GMAT/GRE

The IU-IDB MBA program accepts either the GMAT or GRE scores taken within the last five years. Consisting of three main parts delivered in English and administered in test centers around the world, both the GMAT and GRE exams measure verbal, mathematical, and analytical and writing skills that you’ve developed over time. The exams help graduate programs assess your qualifications for advanced study in business and management.

Taking the time to prepare for the GMAT or GRE is important. The following helpful tools are worth investigation as is participating in one of the webinars or receptions for this MBA:

Practice, Practice, and Practice
Practicing on the computer is the best way to make sure you experience the test to the fullest particularly when it comes to the timing of answering all the questions. Keep in mind that any unanswered questions will count against you. To experience a simulation of the GMAT along with other practice problem material, download the preparatory testing software here and for the GRE here.

What to Expect on Test Day
The following GMAT site has information on what your testing experience will include, which includes a video. For GRE testing day expectations, visit here. Each testing site is somewhat different. Some testing centers provide laminate sheets and erasable markers for test takers to do their calculations on. Calling your selected testing center to ask may be helpful.
