GMAC trying to make the GMAT testing centers more accessible
I guess, this will add more capacity for testing near you and to add some new options for students to consider taking the GMAT. Notice how the new GMAT locations for the "BUS" will primarily target colleges and universities. This will tend towards younger candidates taking the GMAT. Notice how the testing centers aren't stopping at major coporations or industry beltways that are not as represented in the B-School demographics. Interesting! Anyway, it'll be good to see more B-School brains coming around. Too many end up going for non-Business graduate work instead of B-School. So the world loses many of these people to schools that require immediate attendance of graduate school as opposed to B-School that expects some real-world experience. =====================================
GMAC begins a 49-STOP US National to expand GMAT access.
A mobile test center is ready to depart on a 27-state tour Tuesday in Stockton, Calif., part of a pilot project by the Graduate Management Admission Council® (GMAC®) to explore ways to make the GMAT more accessible to people interested in attending business school
The GMAT Mobile Test Center will visit 49 colleges and universities in 27 states during its seven-month, cross-country journey. Stops will include several military installations, historically black colleges and universities, and Hispanic-serving institutions. The bus begins its journey Oct. 31, 2006, at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif. The trip is scheduled to conclude May 31, 2007, at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington.
