Are You GMAT & GRE Ready?
Thinking of applying to the programme? A strong GMAT or GRE score helps us assess your ability to succeed in the programme.
Like many other adaptive tests, both tests require rigorous preparation in the weeks leading up to the exam date. With the right approach and proper planning, however, acing them is well within reach.
Practice the tests on our online simulators to assess your level.

MBAs had generally been on my radar for quite some time. I rapidly realised during my engineering studies that I lacked education on certain key business topics that I would eventually need to look into.
