Like you, they are interested in improving the admissions processes and in promoting high standards within the profession.  Not only will you return to your school armed with career-enhancing knowledge, but you will also have a network of colleagues with whom you have shared the PDP experience and who have the same unique training that you have.

GMAC has been providing this training for 26 consecutive years, and our instructors are experts in the field. They have held positions of high responsibility at respected schools and universities. Some have worked as consultants with the nation’s top corporations—the very companies that will hire your school’s graduates.
