Learn More About GMAC Research and the MERInstitute

By participating in GMAC research surveys and accepting the GMAT exam, your school can get competitive benchmarking analyses and customized data to inform your strategies and tactics. Learn more at the Research Lounge, where GMAC researchers will be on hand at learning stations focused on three topics: Admissions Management (making the most of IR score reports and the ValidityStudy Service); Candidate Engagement; and Career Outcomes. Stop by to learn how you can leverage trends in GMAT test-taker demographics and degree interest in your own work.

While at the Research Lounge, don't miss a preview of ...Disrupt or Be Disrupted: A Blueprint for Change In Management Education, a soon-to-be-published book from the GMAC Management Education Research Institute (MER Institute).
