RESTON, Va. (Mar. 04, 2019) — The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), a global association of leading graduate business schools, announced today that BI Norwegian Business School has become the organization’s newest member. Norway’s largest business school brings GMAC’s total membership to 226.
Select business schools are invited to apply for GMAC membership by its Board of Directors. Each school goes through a comprehensive application process that addresses the sustained commitments to supporting GMAC’s mission: providing the tools and information necessary for schools and talent to discover and evaluate each other.
“We place the same level of value on the diversity of our membership as we do on the diversity in the classroom,” said Sangeet Chowfla, president and CEO of GMAC. “BI Norwegian Business School is our first member school from Norway and is the second largest business school in Europe. We welcome their deep-rooted perspective in the Master’s space and look forward to the insights they will bring as we work to ensure no talent goes undiscovered.”
BI Norwegian Business School
BI Norwegian Business School is Norway’s only triple accredited School. It is also a founding member of the Quantitative Techniques for Economics and Management Masters Network (QTEM), which brings together schools, international corporate partners and a growing number of graduate students from around the world. The welcoming of the BI Norwegian Business School into membership broadens GMAC’s footprint in the Master’s space as well as the diversity of our membership base.
To be considered for membership in GMAC, schools complete an application process and must meet the following criteria: maintain a selective admissions process; offer a master’s program in business administration, management subjects or equivalent; and actively support GMAC’s mission and use the GMAT exam or other GMAC assessments as part of their admissions and enrollment processes. They also participate in GMAC governance, including voting on Board elections and other matters that may come before the Council.
