Do you need a GMAT?

Online degree programs demand previous education just like any other degrees. In order to join an online degree program or other higher distance education program, you may be asked to produce a GMAT certificate. Thousands of graduate management programs around the world use the Graduate Management Admission Test in their admissions process. GMAT stands for General Management Admission Test, and it's the standard qualification for American and other higher education institutions. Does the idea of taking the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) overwhelm you? Relax. People from all over the world and from all different backgrounds have taken the test successfully, and you can too.

Interest in graduate management education, whether on-campus or via online degree programs, has never been higher. Thus the job of selecting a class to fill the limited capacity of most MBA programs has never been more challenging. The applicants come from different countries, cultures, academic backgrounds, and levels of work experience. Using the GMAT exam gives admissions professionals one element of the application that is a consistent measure. The GMAT exam is given under standard conditions around the world, with the highest level of security, to ensure that scores are comparable across applicants.

The GMAT exam was created to measure the academic abilities needed to succeed in graduate management education. Over the 50 years of its use, the GMAT® has been repeatedly studied, tested, and modified to ensure that it continues to help predict performance in the first year or midway through a graduate management program.

The GMAT exam measures basic verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills that test takers have developed over a long period of time, and which will be necessary for an on-campus or online degree program. It does not measure knowledge of business, job skills, or subjective qualities such as motivation, creativity, and interpersonal skills. The GMAT is given in a computer-adaptive format. Questions are dynamically selected on the basis of test taker's responses to previous questions. In general, if the test taker answers correctly, he or she is given a more difficult question. Conversely, if the test taker answers the question incorrectly, he or she is given a less difficult question. Because the questions are administered according to the individual's ability level, each test is unique. However, each test is scored according to the difficulty of the questions administered, so all GMAT test scores can be compared directly. GMAT tests are particularly adequate to measure online degree students' ability to complete their online degree studies.

If English is not your native language and still you wish to study an online degree program in that language, you may also need to provide a TOEFL certificate.
