GMAT - Graduate Management Admission Test
GMAT is a computer adaptive test owned by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). The test assesses analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in written English for use in admission to a graduate management program, such as an MBA.
Being one of the most widely recognized management tests, the GMAT is accepted at more than 2,000 business schools worldwide.
