Integrate Profile Data with Other GMAC Admissions Recruiting Resources

You can use the data in the Profile tables to create candidate profiles for specific country and regional groups that show, for example, how many citizens or residents of Germany sat for the GMAT exam in 2015, their gender, mean age and GMAT Total score, percentage of score reports sent to MBA and non-MBA (master’s) programs, and what share of the total GMAT testing they represent in Europe and globally.

Let the data inform your purchases prospective students names in the Graduate Management Admission Search Service® (GMASS®) database or use the data to develop profiles of the decision-making process for your targeted group of candidates based on findings in the 2015 Prospective Students Survey Interactive Report.
