Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) Founded in 1953 by the deans and admissions officers of leading schools of business and management, the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) is owner and administrator of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT)—the most widely adopted and trusted admissions exam of its kind. More than 2,000 schools in 110 countries today use the GMAT exam to assess applicants to more than 6,000 graduate business and management programs. With its vision of being the leader in connecting talent and aspiration to opportunity, GMAC has expanded its business and staff—as well as its membership—internationally and has adapted its role in graduate management education to include professional development, industry-wide conferences, world-class research, product development, and the global promotion of management education. Today, the not-for-profit Council continues in its mission to improve the discovery and evaluation of talent and deliver on its core belief that business and management—and the teaching of both– are critical to the economic, social, and financial well-being of people worldwide.
