Why the Executive Assessment?

One assessment. 2 Ways.

With a full calendar at the office and a myriad of obligations outside of work, pursuing your business degree is a big step, but once you’ve made that decision, what comes next should fit both your priorities and your experience. The Executive Assessment is offered online or in a test center - or both! 

Bring out your best where you test. You might feel more at ease at home with the online assessment or prefer the structure of a test center. Both options will always be available to you to help you meet your application deadlines.
