    GMAT or GRE?

    Sponsored Ad:
    Ok so I'm looking at programs and different universities (master programs) for next year (August/September 2013). I've already done the TOEFL (got 104/120) and I'm wondering if I should do the GRE or the GMAT.

    (I'm maybe thinking of doing directly an MBA but I don't know much about MBAs so I need to look around first. I'm not even sure that it's the best idea for me at this point)

    I'm looking to do a master degree in finance/financial economics/entrepreneurship/... (not sure which one yet but something of that sort). I'm looking at swiss unis (mainly st-gallen, I'm swiss btw, doing a bachelor degree in a swiss uni), UK, US and canadian universities.

    Now I bought a GRE test prep book but I heard that for finance/economics, the GMAT is better because it's more math orientated, whereas the GRE is more English related. I got 104 in the TOEFL, which is pretty good but writing texts is not what I do best.

    Now I know that most unis accept both the GRE and the GMAT but which one do you think I should do? Which one can I excel the most at?

    Thanks guys.

    Cheers

    Absolutely take the GMAT if you are going to business school. Admissions committees know that it is a more difficult exam.

    This really depends on where you want to go. Schools are accepting both, but if you are looking to get into a top MBA programs then most definitely take the GMAT. The GMAT has a bunch of Verbal content too, but it is not a vocabulary test like the GRE. All in all, the GRE is a bit easier, so if you think you can handle the GMAT then take it as it will look better on any application. Good luck!

    GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement your undergraduate records, recommendation letters and other qualifications for graduate-level study. The GRE revised General Test is accepted at thousands of graduate and business schools as well as departments and divisions within these schools.
