GMAT Mobile Test Center comes to campus

April 19, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Area residents and Western Michigan University students who are thinking about graduate school in business disciplines will take a critical admissions test this month when the GMAT Mobile Test Center comes to the WMU campus Wednesday and Thursday, April 25-26.

The mobile unit will spend both days in front of the Haworth College of Business' Schenider Hall from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The test center is a full-length bus outfitted with the same high-tech facilities found at permanent facilities around the nation where the GMAT--Graduate Management Admissions Test--is routinely offered. The bus features six complete GMAT testing stations, data connectivity via satellite and electronic systems designed to guarantee maximum security for the exam.

The GMAT is a standardized exam used to screen applicants to more than 3,000 business education programs around the world. Launched in 1954, the GMAT today is administered more than 200,000 times annually. A few slots are still available for the Kalamazoo stop. Those interested in registering for testing should go online to www.mba.com for more information about date and time availability during the two-day stop as well as information about other locations where the test is offered.

The Graduate Management Admissions Council, which owns and administers the GMAT has put the mobile unit on a cross-country tour to maximize access to the exam across the United States. The bus will visit nearly 50 colleges and universities in 26 states during its seven-month journey that ends May 31 at Washington State University.
