Around 34,021 GRE candidates opted for business schools in the 2014-15 testing year compared to 30,860 in the previous testing year which means that around 9% more candidates chose to submit GRE scores for admission to business schools over a year. Not many students are aware that there are many top Business Schools accepting GRE Scores across the World. And not just in USA, major business schools in Canada, UK, France and even Asian countries are increasingly accepting GRE scores for admission to their MBA programmes.

Before we bring you top Business Schools accepting GRE Scores, let us first take a look at the GRE pattern.

 

GRE is a standardised test that is accepted for admission to various disciplines at many graduate and business schools across the globe. The GRE General Test (which is accepted for admission) measures an aspirant's verbal, quantitative, critical thinking and analytical writing skills which are covered in three sections — Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing. Currently, over 544,000 students take the GRE test across the World.
