What is the GMAT?
The Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is a standardized test required for acceptance into Graduate School. It consists of four sections: analytical writing assessment, integrated reasoning, quantitative and verbal (in this order). This test is in your interest even if you are not looking to do a Masters in Business Administration program. Programs that accept the GMAT include focus areas of: marketing, hospitality, and international relations, along with a variety of others.

Why Take the GMAT?
9/10 students who were accepted into graduate school were accepted with their GMAT score. The GMAT is the best test score predictor for success because the exam targets specific skills you need for business school. For this reason it has been the leader in its sector for 60 years. If you're not ready to go to graduate school, consider taking the GMAT now as the scores are valid for five years.
