The Graduate Management Admission Council, (GMAC®), founded in 1953, is an international non-profit association of business schools and owner of the GMAT exam, a standardised exam that tests verbal, quantitative, writing and data-analysis.
GMAC® believes that business and management are critical to the economic, social and financial wellbeing of people worldwide. Our mission is to provide information to improve decision-making about the discovery and evaluation of talent for people involved in, or aspiring to be involved in, business or management.
One of the ways we assist this discovery of talent is through the GMAT exam, used by thousands of graduate and management programmes worldwide to objectively measure the skills shown to help graduate management students succeed in today's challenging classrooms.
We also offer a range of products and services that can help you increase your visibility with prospective students and provide you with an understanding of the trends in the market:
