NEW YORK, July 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today The Economist Careers Network announced that it will add two new tools—a GRE Tutor and an Executive Education Navigator—to its suite of educational and professional products for prospective graduate students, professionals at all levels, companies and business schools around the world. A division of the Economist Group, The Economist Careers Network aims to serve as the most trusted guide for the globally curious while on their career journey.
The new tools are designed to accompany a person along two different moments in this journey—the GRE Tutor to prep prospective graduate students for today's most commonly accepted entrance exam, and the Executive Education Navigator to simplify what has become the complex process of searching for the right executive education.
Launch partners for the Executive Education Navigator include University of Oxford; Said Business School; Yale School of Management; Cambridge Judge Business School; Columbia Business School; Case Western Reserve University; Weatherhead School of Management; and London Business School.
"We know how The Economist audience thinks about the world and their place in it, and we want to provide value to them on their career journey," said David Kaye, Economist Careers Network managing director. "That journey, for many people in our audience, includes the decision to pursue an MBA or graduate degree, after which comes the business of finding and getting into the right school, getting through school, finding the right job after school and then keeping their skills sharp so they can find a better job. Our new GRE Tutor is aimed at the early stages of that journey, while the new Executive Education Navigator is aimed toward the end of that journey."
About the GRE Tutor
Launching in July, The Economist's new GRE Tutor (which will have the same look and feel as its existing GMAT Tutor) was developed in response to the trend over the past five years of business schools accepting the GRE as an entrance exam substitute for the GMAT. (Ninety percent of the Top 100 business schools now accept the GRE as an entrance exam; and whereas about 250,000 people took the GMAT last year, about three times that number took the GRE last year.) An adaptive learning product, the GRE Tutor draws from a proprietary question bank to simulate both the content and format of the GRE.
About the Executive Education Navigator
Live now at execed.economist.com, the Executive Education Navigator is a first-of-its-kind search and discovery destination made to help simplify the search for people who are looking for the right executive education. Says Kaye, "There are hundreds, if not thousands, of institutions offering executive education, and the task of finding the right course for you at the right time is actually very tedious and will start to become like a second job—a very lonely second job—if you're doing it by yourself." The Executive Education Navigator was built to be a user-driven product that allows users to search using specific parameters (such as dates, cost, industries and course topics) and to compare and contrast executive education programs.
