GMAT Information

The GMAT is a standardized assessment required for applicants to the MBA, MAcc, & MSTax programs. The GMAT  is comprised of four sections: the Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative, and Verbal.

Effective June 2012, the Integrated Reasoning section was added to the exam to access students' ability to synthesize, evaluate, and manipulate data presented in graphics, text, and numbers.

To learn more about why this section was added, click here to view the video on GMAC's site.

To see a sample of one of the Integrated Reasoning question types, view the video below:

For additional information on the Integrated Reasoning section, visit the GMAT Next Generation Information Center.

At you can download free GMAT Power Prep software, practice exams, and find a testing center near you.  We recommend students take at least 3 complete practice exams online or on the CD-ROMs that come with some of the prep books. Note: Not all books come with CD ROMs. We highly recommend you buy a book with a CD-ROM or an online test bank.

Gonzaga's minimum GMAT requirement is a 500 for students with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Students with below a 3.0 must score proportionately higher on the exam to be eligible for admission. The average GMAT score for applicants is a 570. If you do not receive the score that you need to be admitted,  you must wait 30 days to retake it. We will use your best score for the admissions process.
