Want to get a business graduate degree at a top university?
Ace the GMAT and you'll be on your way toward achieving a higher education.

The Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is a standardized, computer-based assessment exam consisting of four main parts—the quantitative section, the verbal section, the integrated reasoning section, and the analytical writing assessment.   Business schools worldwide use this test as a criterion for admission into a wide range of graduate management programs. In order to get your ideal score and be accepted into the top business universities, you must prepare, review, and practice the material that will be covered on the test.
 
The College of Business is offering a GMAT Prep course beginning March 13, 2013. The curriculum is a 7-week course that meets twice each week for 90 minutes each session. Each class will consist of lecture, exercises, and time open for questions. An introduction/lecture into each of the concepts will be taught and a mixture of easy to difficult questions with test techniques will be presented during each session.
 
Register early as class size is limited.  Course registration of $100 includes all 12 sessions and hand-outs.  To register, print the form provided and mail to the College of Business along with payment.  Please contact the College of Business if you are registering after March 7th to ensure course materials at 906-227-1894.
