Temporary Changes to the Application Process

Given the temporary closure of GMAC’s testing centres in Mainland China and many other locations worldwide as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 situation, to offer flexibility to candidates and also to maintain a high admission standard, the following temporary changes and allowances to the application process of CEIBS Global EMBA have been made:
- The deadlines for this year's application remain unchanged. We encourage you to apply in early round to give yourself a better chance of admission in 2020.
- If you reside in a country in which the testing centres are closed, your application can be accepted without an Executive Assessment (or GMAT) test score.
- You will be invited for an Admission Interview after the application deadline. Interviews can be conducted online or face to face, dependent on local government's policy.
- You must complete Executive Assessment (or GMAT) within 5 weeks after the GMAC testing centres re-open.
- Once you have completed the Executive Assessment, an admission decision will be made within two weeks.
If you are based in a location where the testing centres remain open, then you should follow the usual admission procedure, which is to complete the Executive Assessment (or GMAT) before the deadline by which you are applying.
