Integrated Reasoning and Admissions

Integrated Reasoning Webinar

You’re beginning to receive GMAT score reports with an Integrated Reasoning (IR) score, and it’s a new data point to consider when evaluating applicants. How do IR scores fit into your toolkit of measures to evaluate and select the best students for your programs? What do IR scores tell you about an applicant’s ability to succeed in your classroom and the corporate environment?

This session explores insights into six months of GMAT testing with IR, and the relationship between IR scores and other elements of an applicant’s profile. A panel of admission directors share insights into the role that IR has played in their admissions process.


  • Find out how your peers are using IR as an additional data point in their admissions process.
  • Did you know IR was added to the GMAT exam because faculty and admissions staff requested new skills be measured? Learn what skills and findings from the first six months of IR.
  • Corporate employers, students, and alumni agree that IR skills are very important to succeed in graduate programs and the workforce. Do you agree?
  • IR measures something different from the verbal and quantitative section of the GMAT exam. Learn how the correlations differ by section.
