How do classmates compare in terms of intellectual horsepower? Between full-time and part-time MBAs, the difference is certainly noticeable. At Booth, for example, the full-time MBAs entered the program in the fall of 2018 with a 731 average GMAT, over 50 points higher than their part-time peers (679). You'll find a similar 50-60 point difference at Northwestern Kellogg, Michigan Ross, and NYU Stern. The gap between full-time and executive is harder to gauge as only one Top 25 program reported (or even collected) average GMATs among their EMBA classes.
