Prepare for the Executive Assessment

The Booth Executive MBA is known as one of the most challenging and academically rigorous programs of its kind. To help us assess suitability, we require all applicants to take the Executive Assessment (EA) or equivalent exam. We’ve developed a one-of-a-kind, exclusive webinar series that can help you prepare. Taught in the Chicago Booth classroom style, the two webinars feature deep dives into the Quantitative and Integrated Reasoning sections of the test and will equip you with the tools you’ll need for the EA and in business school.
