The Educational Testing Service (ETS) have recently declared that the GRE General Test, the world's widely accepted graduate admissions test, is now accepted by more than 500 business schools worldwide for their MBA programmes. According to the statistics in the last four years, the number of business schools accepting the GRE General Test for MBA admissions has multiplied.
For business schools around the world, accepting GRE scores means expanding their pool of applicants and gaining more diversity. It leads to good business sense for b-schools to accept the GRE General Test.
With the recent addition of the University of Missouri, Temple University, Case Western Reserve University, and the University of Oklahoma, the GRE General Test is now accepted by 52 percent of the U.S. News & World Report top 100 U.S. programmes. The international additions include INSEAD, Central European University Business School and Caucasus University.
The introduction of the GRE revised General Test launching in August 2011 will see many benefits for the test takers and institutions.A friendlier test-taking experience, new questions that emphasize real-world scenarios and new test design features are just some of the changes test takers can expect.
