Format & Timing

The Executive Assessment measures business skills and program readiness through higher-order reasoning, such as reading comprehension, critical thinking, analysis, and problem-solving. Test takers will use English-language and math to demonstrate their ability to reason with these skills.

The questions on this assessment are delivered in a multistage adaptive format, so each question in the sequence you see is unique to you. Questions are selected based upon your response to the previous question and the level of difficulty of the question.

On test day, you have 90 minutes to complete the three sections of the Executive Assessment – Integrated Reasoning, Verbal, and Quantitative.
