Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT)

All applicants to a Masters or PhD level program at the John Molson of Business are required to submit a valid GMAT score as part of their application, unless specified as an exception under the program’s admission requirements. This aptitude test measures quantitative abilities, verbal skills, integrated reasoning and analytical writing. It is used as a diagnostic tool for assessing and comparing the suitability of candidates. The GMAT is administered as a Computer-Adaptive Test (CAT) through the Pearson Professional Centre network throughout North America and at many international test centers.

If you are applying to the Executive MBA, we encourage you to consider the Executive Assessment. The EA is specifically designed to evaluate the business school readiness of seasoned professionals. The test is administered by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), creators of the GMAT® exam. Learn more about the Executive Assessment here.
