The Graduate Management Admission Test is a standardized test organized by GMAC (Graduate Management Admission Council) for candidates aspiring to take up the MBA program abroad. Business Schools abroad rely on the GMAT score to make their admission decisions. GMAT preparation also enables a candidate to demonstrate his commitment to a career in business.
The GMAT Exam measures the skills a candidate possesses for admission into a business school. It is a valid exam that rightly measures the academic performance of a candidate. It predicts program performance of the candidate. This is gaining prominent importance because the employers’ demand for graduate business students continues to show an upward trend, as more companies plan to hire graduates from MBA and master level programs in management, accounting and finance.
There are a lot of factors that affect selection into graduate business schools. Some of the notable ones are the proven ability to perform, strong oral communication skills, strong technical and quantitative skills, increased job responsibility, strong writing skills and relevant industry experience. Employers expect B- school graduates to possess an average experience of 2-4 years while applying.
