About the Program

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a computer standardized test in mathematics and the English language for measuring aptitude to succeed academically in graduate business studies. Business schools use the test as a criterion for admission into graduate business administration programs (e.g. MBA, Master of Accountancy, etc.). The GMAT Preparation Course provides a review of the skills needed for the Graduate Management Admissions Test. We use the latest up-to-date learning resources. The course covers test-taking strategies for enhancing your scores on the verbal and quantitative sections of the exam. The GMAT instructor reviews college level mathematics and assigns homework to prepare you for your exam. The course is conveniently located in Constant Hall at the Old Dominion University main campus. Please contact the Executive Development Center at (757) 683-4838 or email C. Anders.
