GMAC Statement on the Crisis in Eastern Europe

February 25, 2022

In light of the current military conflicts and economic sanctions impacting the lives and livelihood of many in the region, our thoughts are with all those who are affected. In this challenging time, the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), the owner and administrator of the GMAT™, NMAT and Executive Assessment as well as, BusinessBecause and The MBA Tour, shares our heartfelt sympathy and support for all those who are affected by the conflict.

As a global, mission-oriented organization, we strive to serve the graduate management education communities around the world without geopolitical considerations. As individuals, we are deeply concerned about the safety and well-being of all and call for a de-escalation of tensions and hostility and a reversion to dialogue and diplomacy to address conflicts.

We also remain committed to providing access to graduate management education resources for students and business school professionals throughout the world. We recognize that the international political, security and regulatory environments may unfortunately limit our ability to provide access as much as we would like to, and the educational and career plans of many will be impacted as the world awaits a peaceful resolution to the conflict. The current environment is fraught and may have prolonged implications for international student mobility in affected regions. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide as much support to students and candidates as we can.
