Coronavirus (or Covid-19) is impacting business schools around the world. In this difficult climate, the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), owner and administrator of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), has closed test centers and suspended test taking in many locations.
If you’re considering applying to business school, this will affect you as the GMAT exam is the premier admission test for business schools, used as a quality indicator when measuring your suitability for an MBA or master's program.
GMAC is releasing regular updates on the status of its GMAT test centers and GMAT testing in various locations. This also extends to the Executive Assessment (EA) test for Executive MBA candidates.
GMAC has also launched the GMAT Online Exam as an at-home testing solution, with around-the-clock testing appointments available. This option is open to candidates globally excluding Mainland China, Iran, Cuba, Sudan, Slovenia, and North Korea.
Here, we update you on the latest news on GMAT testing suspensions and test center closures:
