The GMAT® (Graduate Management Admission Test) exam is the assessment for graduate business school candidates—it was designed by business schools to measure the skills shown to help graduate business students succeed in the challenging curriculum. A computer-adaptive exam that assesses Verbal, Quantitative, and Analytical Writing skills developed over time, the GMAT exam is a valid and reliable predictor of success in graduate business school.
Business schools use the test as a criterion for admission into graduate business administration programs (e.g. MBA, Master of Accountancy, etc.) principally in the United States, but also in other English-speaking countries. It is delivered via computer at various locations around the world.
Applicants come from different countries, cultures, academic backgrounds, and levels of work experience. Using the GMAT exam gives admissions professionals a consistent, objective measure of skills above all these application variables. The GMAT exam is given under standard conditions around the world, with the highest level of security, to ensure that scores are comparable across applicants.
Generally, GMAT appointments are available six days a week, but testing centers set their own hours to meet local and regional needs. Secure, standardized testing centers deliver the test in 111 countries around the world. To find out more, please visit mba.com to Find a Test Center.
