Hult and GMAC launch new online assessment for Masters degree programs
Hult International Business School has partnered with the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) to create an online assessment specifically designed for Hult’s Master of International Business (MIB) program.
The assessment, which will be ready for launch in August, has been developed to bring further rigor to the application process, maintain candidate quality, and contribute to a high quality classroom experience for students. In addition to being available online, the assessment can also be taken at 4,500 test centers around the world, through a partnership with Pearson VUE.
“We are delighted to be the first school to develop this assessment,” said Stephen Hodges, president, Hult International Business School. “Every year for our Masters programs, we have 5,000 candidates from 130 countries, many of whom live in remote locations where getting to a physical test center is difficult. The online proctored assessment makes it very easy and accessible for candidates to sit the assessment, whilst giving us a standardized metric to compare candidates.”
The assessment has been designed for students with zero to three years of work experience and tests basic quantitative and verbal reasoning skills. It takes only 45 minutes to complete and requires no specific preparation and there is no pass or fail.
“GMAC is pleased to be a part of Hult’s decision to use an assessment in its efforts to provide an even better classroom experience for students,” said Sangeet Chowfla, president and chief executive officer of GMAC. “For GMAC, the Hult assessment marks the development of a new capability and an expansion of our mission to connect the talent and aspirations of students with the opportunities provided though graduate management education.”
