Are you applying for either an MBA or Master’s programme? If so, you probably need to take an English language proficiency test and achieve a score good enough for admission. So you should choose the test for which you will perform best.
If you have done your research, you will already know that there are several available options. TOEFL and IELTS, along with TOEIC and the Cambridge ESOL tests are just the most popular tests. They are all internationally recognised language proficiency tests. They are accepted by most universities and business schools which offer MBA or Master’s programmes taught in English.
