Executive Programs offers an Admissions Test as an alternative to the GMAT for admission to our programs. This test is for applicants to the Executive MBA or Executive MS in Finance who were advised that a GMAT score was required or recommended as part of their application.
Applicants who take the Test before July may take it more than once to improve their score. We will continue to administer the test as needed for applicants that apply after July 10th.
How to take the Test
To take the Test, you must:
- register for the test date, and
- pay the Executive Programs application fee ($125) by check or money order made out to "Baruch College". If you have already paid the fee with your application, you do not need to pay it again. The test itself is free.
Preparing for the Admissions Test
The Admissions Test covers three areas: Finance, Accounting and Statistics. A list of detailed topics for the Admissions Test can be downloaded here.
While you may prepare for this test in any way you wish, we recommend a set of online training modules provided by Responsive.net that cover the same material as the Admissions Assessment. There are three modules:
- Statistics Foundations
- Finance Foundations
- Accounting Foundations
Each module consists of a set of tutorials and online assessments (these assessments are different from the Admissions Test, but cover the same material).
You must purchase a separate code to access each module. The price is $60 for each module and gives you access to the module for one year. To purchase access, go to . (Note: the price for access is set by Responsive.net and Baruch College has no financial interest in this product).
These online tutorials are completely optional. However, they are recommended for all our students to help them acquire the skills they need to succeed in the program.
