The INSEAD Assessment has been designed for senior level, busy, international applicants as an alternative entry route to taking GMAT. Similarly to GMAT, it tests your aptitude for business related subjects and is used to assess your analytical abilities.
If you decide to take the INSEAD Assessment, you must submit your application at least 2 weeks before your targeted test date. Successful applicants will then be invited to sit the test on one of the three INSEAD campuses.
The INSEAD Assessment focuses on testing business-relevant skills. It does NOT require you to spend time on extensive preparation for rule-based mathematics and English grammar correction that would not be used in a business context.
