Reap the Benefits of Accepting GMAT Scores

Accepting and requiring the GMAT exam delivers the following advantages to your institution:

  • Gives admissions professionals a consistent, objective measure of skills above all application variables, including language, country, cultures, and educational background.
  • Establishes selectivity for your program and sends a message to prospective students that quality matters.
  • Lets you create a pipeline of quality candidates and enables your program to be more selective regardless of application volume.
  • Helps your program compete for domestic students who would otherwise study abroad, and offers them a less costly alternative.
  • Attracts African expatriates who would like to return to study in Africa, but currently can’t find high-quality programs that meet their needs.
  • Heightens the reputation of your program by joining others that are distinguished by their commitment to excellence.

Find and Connect with Prospects

GMAC also helps you find top talent through a combination of recruiting services and leadership opportunities, including the Graduate Management Admission Search Service® (GMASS®), a database that contains nearly 400,000 qualified and interested potential applicants, and professional development opportunities for admissions personnel geared toward networking, learning, and the exchange of ideas.

Build a Pipeline of Qualified Candidates

Students from countries across Africa are concerned that they underperform their non-African counterparts on the GMAT exam. Graduate management programs that promote preparation – through access to tools and materials, or through faculty/alumni networks and related events – will help improve performances on the exam and contribute to a sustainable pipeline of quality talent across the continent. GMAC offers a wide range of resources aimed at building awareness among potential graduate management education candidates, and promoting careers in management and the importance of enrolling in quality programs.
