Although some Universities accept GRE for MBA admissions, my suggestion would be GMAT, since you are an MBA product. 


GMAT has Quantitative (math) section, Verbal section and AWA (Argument based and Issue based essay). Total score is out of 800, you can visit E book on Uniguru to get complete information about taking GMAT.

GMAT is required for admission mostly in business schools, GRE is required for admission in most graduate schools and also business schools. 

GMAT consists of 30 min analytic test with one essay, 3o min integrated reasoning section, 75 min quantitative and 75 min verbal. GRE has 60 min writing, with two essays 60 mins. There's verbal reasoning test with 2 30 mins parts. There are 2 35 min quantitative reasoning. There's also 30 min math or verbal reasoning.

GRE is the latest format and it's widely accepted. It depends on the school you're applying to some prefer GMAT and some prefer GRE.
