Personalized Program Recommendations

Find Your Best-Fit Programs

Discover the difference between a good fit b-school and your best-fit b-school using the My Recommendations service, exclusively available to GMAT test takers. 

My Recommendations is a highly personalized service providing you with a list of up to 10 recommended b-school programs based on your unique profile, interests, and GMAT scores. 

This service can help you find and evaluate business programs that align with your own unique experience, preferences, and career aspirations to help you perform and success at your best. 

You can:  

  • Discover new programs. Expand your options and explore programs not included in your initial research. 
  • Compare your performance. See how competitive your GMAT score is for programs you sent score reports to and for your recommended programs. 
  • Send score reports. Quickly and easily send GMAT scores to your recommended programs and save them to your School Search profile.  

Discover Your Competitive Advantage

My Recommendations helps you analyze how your GMAT score compares with other scores at similar recommended b-school programs. For each program recommendation, you’ll receive a GMAT Competitive Rating of: 

  • Excellent
  • Above Average
  • Average
  • Low 

Your rating indicates how strong your GMAT score is for that program compared to the scores of others and can help you make informed decisions—strengthening other parts of your application, retaking the GMAT exam, or considering other b-school programs.

Our Methodology

Our algorithm finds your best-fit programs based on preferences you list in your mba.com profile, (intended major, intended industry, intended region of study, program type, etc.) your GMAT score and global GMAT score-sending trends. It then evaluates how your Verbal and Quantitative scores compare both regionally and globally and considers the volume of GMAT scores sent to each program to provide your Competitive Rating.

The algorithm does not use any potentially sensitive information (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity, etc.), and it does not target or exclude any business program.  

Keep in mind there are many factors considered in b-school admissions; An “Excellent” ranking does not guarantee admission nor does a “Low” ranking deny your admission.

The GMAT exam helps you stand out during the admissions process. Take the one business school exam that elevates you from the rest of the pack.

If test centers are closed in your area due to the COVID-19 pandemic, consider taking the GMAT Online Exam, an interim, proctored exam that you can take in the comfort of your home.
