Business Schools: Make the GRE® revised General Test a Powerful Part of Your Recruitment and Admissions Strategy
Now you can have an even bigger, more diversified pool of highly qualified applicants when you accept GRE® scores as part of your recruitment and admissions strategy.

Expand Your Applicant Pool with GRE Test Takers Worldwide
Here's why accepting GRE scores makes good business sense:
- You get more highly qualified, highly diverse applicants for your business school. Potential applicants come from a variety of backgrounds in terms of nationality, ethnicity, gender, age and undergraduate major. And you can reach hundreds of thousands of these GRE test takers directly using the GRE® Search Service.
- The GRE® revised General Test measures the skills that business schools value — quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing. It also measures the same level of math knowledge as other leading graduate admissions tests, presents many questions in a business context and does not presume advanced knowledge in any specific content area, including business.
- As the world's leading educational measurement and research organization, ETS is committed to ensuring the trusted reliability, security and validity of our test scores. For more than 60 years GRE scores have been a proven measure of graduate-level skills and GRE tests are supported by ETS's ongoing commitment to validity research.
- GRE scores are required for admission to many graduate programs in quantitatively demanding fields — such as those in the STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
- The AACSB, ACBSP, AMBA and EFMD do not require business schools to use any particular standardized admissions test for accreditation.
