Accurately Predicting Success

For more than 40 years, we have conducted studies to analyze students’ GMAT scores, their undergraduate grade point averages, and their average grades for the first year of graduate school. The goal is to validate the GMAT exam’s accuracy in predicting student success in graduate business programs. Studies have shown that GMAT scores are typically better than undergraduate GPAs for predicting grades in the first-year of graduate management school. However, the best predictor is combining GMAT scores and the undergraduate GPA to predict success.

To help you with this important assessment, we offer our Validity Study Service (VSS), a complimentary service to all schools that receive the GMAT exam. This service helps you pinpoint the relationship between GMAT scores and performance in your school’s program by analyzing your admission criteria. We can tell you in an objective way how valid the GMAT exam is for predicting future success in your program.
