Based on the weight of your admission file and the outcome of the intake interview, the MBA Admission Committee is also allowed for both the executive as online track to request an additional admission test, like the GMAT or the Executive Assessment. Where the GMAT is for young professionals with up to 10 years of work experience, the Executive Assessment is for more senior professionals with at least 10 years of work experience. Candidates with a Master or PhD degree are exempted from taking this additional admission test.
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT™) is an independent, international, standardised admission test. The test measures candidates’ verbal, mathematical and analytical skills. Our business school uses the GMAT™ for young professionals with up to 10 years of work experience to determine the competencies of these potential candidates for an advanced study in business and management. Besides the regular GMAT™ exam, we also accept the GMAT™ Online exam. This is an online and remote proctored solution developed by GMAC, the maker of the GMAT™ exam. Whilst open to all candidates, the GMAT online format is intended to support candidates working to meet our upcoming application deadlines. For more information about the GMAT™ Online exam, visit the website of our partner GMAC.
To kick off your preparations for the GMAT™, please visit the GMAC website or contact the MaastrichtMBA office for more information. The majority of candidates will need at least several weeks afterwards to get ready for the test.

The Executive Assessment is specifically designed for Executive MBA (EMBA) programs. It is for more senior professionals with at least 10 years of work experience and it has been created specifically to measure the skills and knowledge of experienced professionals. It’s designed to require minimal preparation and the exam takes significantly less time at 90 minutes. Also, instead of being reported separately, your Integrated Reasoning score on the Executive Assessment is included as part of your Total score.
