GMAC Unveils Two New Websites for Prospective MBA Applicants in India, Africa
The Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC), which owns the GMAT, this month announced that it has launched new websites for potential graduate management students in India and Africa.
The India site, www.mba.com/India, features details about business schools and MBA programs in India and abroad as well as information about how to finance an MBA program. Through video, Indian students share their experiences of preparing for the GMAT and navigating the MBA admissions process.
GMAC’s decision to launch a site for Indian applicants reflects the dramatic growth the council has seen in the number of candidates from the region expressing interest in business school over the past several years, according to Ashish Bhardwaj, GMAC regional director for South Asia. “Also with significant growth in acceptance of the GMAT at Indian business schools, these candidates have more choice,” Bhardwaj added. “This new site will help them navigate the path to a quality graduate management degree with content designed specifically for this market.”
The Africa site, www.mba.com/africa, is similar to the India site in that it provides an array of information about the GMAT and graduate management education in general intended to help students in Africa who are interested in studying management on the African continent or abroad. Video elements on this site, too, feature students as well as school professionals discussing GMAT preparation and the overall MBA admissions process.
