GMAT Preparation

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a requirement for the graduate business programs. The GMAT is a test of analytical reasoning. Consequently, individuals who have been practicing in fields outside of business should be at no particular disadvantage. However, the Seidman College has found that this test can be a hurdle for students, especially those who have been practicing in fields where algebra is not routinely applied.
