Important Announcement about the CEIBS Global EMBA Admission Test Process

CEIBS Global EMBA is very happy to announce that, beginning in May, applicants will have expanded options for them to take their Executive Assessment, which is a requirement for admission to the Global EMBA programme. All applicants to CEIBS Global EMBA are required to have completed the Executive Assessment before the admission round deadline within which they are applying.

Mainland China-based applicants:

Testing centres for the Executive Assessment have re-opened throughout mainland China. Applicants are able to book a time to take the Executive Assessment in a testing centre in mainland China. We recommend applicants to book as soon as possible to ensure they don't miss out on the date they want. 

Please click to book a session HERE.

Applicants outside Mainland China:

Many testing centres around the world remain closed due to the Covid-19 situation. GMAC have announced the release of an interim, online alternative to the assessment delivered in test centers.  These are the key details:

  • Exam Structure & Time - The Executive Assessment Online has the identical structure as the Executive Assessment delivered in test centers. Candidates should budget an additional 15 minutes for the online proctor check-in process.  
  • Exam Scores - To enable comparability, the Executive Assessment Online will have the same type and number of items, sections, and duration as the assessment administered in test centers.
  • Access - The Executive Assessment Online will be accessible on a personal computer. Test takers will be provided with detailed information on these requirements and will have an opportunity to run a system test prior to their test date. 
  • Security - The check-in and security protocols such as identification verification and video monitoring at all times will be in place, and remote human proctors will be used to maintain test integrity.
  • Preparing for the Assessment - Candidates should feel confident leveraging existing Executive Assessment Official prep materials as they are relevant to the online exam.

Please note that mainland China-based applicants will not be able to take the online Executive Assessment. This is only available to applicants based outside mainland China.
