JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – REGISTRATIONS for the famed NMAT by Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) examinations are now open in South Africa.
It is the first time the exercise has been opened in the country. There are plans to move into several other countries around the world in subsequent years.
The Association of African Business Schools (AABS) and the South African Business School Association (SABSA) are formulating the exam.
After completing the examination, test-takers can use their score to apply for study at leading South African business schools, including Gordon Institute of Business Science, Milpark Business School, North West
University, Rhodes Business School, University of South Africa (UNISA) Graduate School of Business Leadership and Wits Business School.Dr Ron Sibert, GMAC’s Market Development Director in Africa, said African business schools have expressed a need for better, more informed approaches to selecting students for their MBA and other graduate management programmes.
“The NMAT by GMAC will provide a more objective measure of student preparedness, thereby helping to ensure they are positioned for academic success.”
The test not only streamlines business school admissions but also measures the skills required for academic success in African management programmes and gives schools access to reliable information when selecting candidates for their education programmes.
The NMAT by GMAC exam has been a symbol of quality since it was first introduced in India more than 20 years ago.
Today, 17 leading Indian business schools accept the exam.
