2013 Application Trends Survey Methodology


GMAC conducted the 2013 Application Trends Survey from early June to mid-July 2013. A total of 328 graduate business schools and faculties participated in this survey and submitted data for 683 graduate management programs, including 482 MBA, 187 specialized master’s, 13 doctoral programs, and one joint-degree program in business and management fields.

This annual survey of business school admission professionals worldwide assesses how application volume at MBA and other graduate management programs compares with that from the same period the year before. The 2013 study was the 14th in the series of GMAC surveys that monitor application trends.
