GMAT™ Reporting for Duty

DANTES, the U.S. military’s partner for testing services at its installations around the world, chose Fort Hood as the pilot site because of the base’s ability to provide the technology and security required to administer the exam. Testing began in January.

“This is a great addition to our testing services for soldiers,” said Bill Kinnison, the educational services officer at the base, in a recent interview for DANTES’ base newsletter. “The GMAT would not otherwise be available to soldiers in this part of the state.” Fort Hood is located in Killeen, about 65 miles from Austin.

“This program builds on our efforts on behalf of schools to increase the diverse pool of candidates for business programs,” adds Peg Jobst, senior vice president at GMAC and head of the GMAT program. “We look forward to expanding this program to other military installations.”

The next installation planning to conduct GMAT testing, Yokota Air Base in Japan, is ramping up its technology and security measures.

Interest among military personnel in pursuing a graduate business degree—and taking the GMAT—is growing. In the last 18 months, the cross-country tour of the GMAT Mobile Test Center included stops at Fort Hood, the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Pensacola (Florida) Naval Air Station, and Fort Bragg in North Carolina.
