  4. The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Executive Assessment (EA) is not required for admission, however it is recommended for those candidates whose prior academic work does not show distinction or clear evidence of strong quantitative and logical reasoning skills.
The East-West class mix provides the diversity of perspectives, opinions and most importantly the global network. Also, the schedule and subjects are optimal for the busy global executive who's looking to gain new knowledge and navigate in an increasingly complex world.
