Integrated reasoning skills are in demand – by graduate business programs, global employers, and recruiters. GMAC developed the Integrated Reasoning (IR) section of the GMAT exam as a way to measure “big data” skills – your ability to evaluate and synthesize information presented in multiple formats. The IR section offers you one more way to differentiate yourself from others and demonstrate your ability to succeed in the business school classroom and in our data-driven, technologically advanced workplace. In other words, the IR section gives critical thinkers and integrators a chance set themselves apart.

Nine out of 10 employers seek to hire business school graduates who can demonstrate the “big data” skills that the IR section measures, so your ability to analyze information from a variety of sources and develop strategies to make smart decisions is in high demand. The bottom line is that your integrated reasoning skills correlate with your success in the business world. That’s what employers are after—their success depends on your success. 

And business schools agree. “This has been called the era of big data, and it is increasingly evident that the future will be claimed by those able to see the critical patterns among overwhelming complexity,” said Christine Poon, dean of The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business and former vice chairman of Johnson & Johnson’s board of directors and worldwide chairman of the Pharmaceuticals Group.
