If you have not yet met the team from IE Business School at the many events they host in Tel Aviv throughout the year, then you need to meet Joël McConnell, Director for Europe within the International Development Department at IE University. The institution is most known for its highly competitive International MBA program, a 1-year MBA completed full time, in English, at the school’s Madrid campus. The program offers a straightforward format of Core+Lab Period+Elective Period, has a real focus on technology and new venture creation, and boasts more than 90% international students, from more than 70 countries.
We recently caught up with Joël when he was in Tel Aviv hosting IE Professor Miguel Otero-Iglesias for a talk on US-China relations, an event for potential candidates and IE alumni, to talk about another special opportunity available at IE: the IE Global Admissions Test (also referred to as the “ieGAT”). Something special about the admissions process for IE Business School’s MBA program is that in addition to accepting the standard GMAT or GRE admissions test as part of the overall application, candidates to IE also have the opportunity to alternatively write the ieGAT. Joël said that while having a standard quantitative metric that can be used to compare profiles is important when building the class profile, the admissions test result is only one small aspect of the overall application and so IE is open to any of the three admissions test options. The added plus is that there is no added fee for the ieGAT, and the Admissions Department at IE considers all three results equally valid. But don’t think it’s an easy way out as the ieGAT content both mirrors that of the GMAT and the ieGAT is a timed test!
So, if you are tight on time for a Fall 2019 MBA program application process, then you’ve got a great option from IE Business School, which you can sit in Tel Aviv, at no added cost. And IE Business School representatives offer the test right here in Tel Aviv, 3-5 times per year.
Are you serious about applying to IE Business School’s International MBA program? Do you want to sit the upcoming ieGAT the school will be offering in Tel Aviv in November 2018? If so, then contact your Aringo admissions consultant who can book a place for you. IE Business School and Aringo are partners, and work together to help top candidates who want to complete a 1-year MBA program in Europe.
