The above-mentioned are some of the top universities and colleges that accept GRE scores. Having said that, most business schools prefer GMAT over GRE. A couple of reasons why they prefer the GMAT over GRE is as follows:
- The first reason being, the GRE is a recent development in the field of Business Studies. The GMAT has been around for longer and the Business School admission committee receives a lot more GMAT tests than GRE. This makes it easier for the admission committee to compare, contrast and choose the perfect candidate.
- The second reason being, taking the GRE — according to the admission committee — means you are not very keen on doing a business or management program. Since the GRE is a graduate exam, it makes you eligible for all graduate programs and broadens your scope of applying to any number of programs you wish. This is seen as a drawback for the business school admission committee.
- The third reason being, the admission committee believes that the Quantitative and Integrated reasoning sections of the GMAT will equip the students with similar skills that are required for the MBA program.
Despite these reasons, about 75% of Business schools give equal importance to the GRE exam scores.
