The purpose of the GME Admissions Reporting Standards is to aid in creating trust, educating junior colleagues or those new to GME admissions, and standardizing reporting, so candidates can accurately compare across programs. In response to requests from the membership, GMAC formed a task force at the beginning of 2019 to revise the MBA Reporting Criteria (in effect from 2000 to 2013) into new GME Admissions Reporting Standards ("Standards"). These new Standards, which were endorsed by GMAC membership in the summer of 2020, are intended to align with the transformation of our industry and today's best practices.
A recommendation of the 2019 Reporting Standards Task Force was that the Standards be reviewed every two years to ensure they continue to guide schools in distributing reliable, accurate, useful, and comparable GME Admissions data for prospective students and rankings organizations. In 2022, a new task force was formed, and after reviewing and analyzing market data and securing feedback from colleagues in GME, they released an updated version of the GME Admissions Reporting Standards to serve as a reference for schools.
Below is a list of schools whose program(s) are adopting the Standards for the academic year of 2022-2023.
If your institution has adopted the Standards and would like to receive a badge indicating compliance and be included in the list below as well as have the badge reflected on your school program on mba.com (more than 12 million visitors annually), please contact email@example.com.
