Recruiting would be a lot more efficient if you could just start with a pool of potential students you knew were serious about business school and would be a good demographic fit for your program.

GMASS, the Graduate Management Admission Search Service, lets you do just that. By using your own criteria to sort through nearly 400,000 registrants who’ve opted in to hear from schools, you can target precisely those who are the most likely fit for your program.

Drawing from the demographic data from profiles, GMASS can be sorted by 25 subcategories, such as age range, gender, citizenship, current location, ethnic identification, undergraduate major, degree objective, GMAT score range, and planned date of enrollment.
