What is GMAT

GMAT stands for "Graduate Management Admission Test" and is typically required for international MBA programmes. Candidates' analytical skills will be evaluated by their performance on the test's quantitative and verbal reasoning sections. Despite the fact that the GMAT is often required for MBA admissions, no management-specific preparation is needed. The GMAT is a test of the rudimentary analytical and communication abilities you'll need to make it through your time in business school. Therefore, students without a management experience shouldn't stress over their GMAT preparation.
