NYU Stern School of Business Now Accepting GRE for Full-Time & Part-Time MBA Programs

New York University Stern School of Business will begin accepting Graduate Record Exam (GRE) test scores from candidates applying to its full-time and Langone part-time MBA programs for fall 2010 admission. Applicants will now have the option to submit either Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or GRE scores with their application.

The GRE is a rigorous measure of academic aptitude in verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning and analytical writing taken by more than 600,000 test takers annually in 165 countries. By accepting the GRE, Stern is making it easier for an expansive pool of potential applicants to consider our programs.

“This move ensures that our business education is even more accessible to high quality applicants from all professional backgrounds, all around the world,” said Anika Davis Pratt, assistant dean of MBA Admissions. “Now applicants weighing post-graduate program options won’t need to study for and take an additional exam, should they choose business school as their next step,” continued Pratt.

Throughout its more than 100-year history, NYU Stern has fostered a culture of inclusiveness and diversity. This is evidenced by the School’s consistent admission of one of the highest percentages of women MBA students and underrepresented minorities among top-tier business schools – 39 percent women and 14 percent underrepresented minorities for the 2009 admitted full-time MBA class.

“In keeping with Stern’s long-standing commitment to diversity, accepting GRE test scores is a natural step for us,” explained Pratt.

NYU Stern joins a growing number of top business schools, including Stanford Graduate School of Business, Harvard Business School and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, that are now accepting either the GRE or GMAT.
