GUC Policy concerning the GMAT
- Students who submit a satisfactory GMAT score report with their admission credentials are fully accepted.
- Students who choose to submit their GMAT score by the end of the first semester are conditionally accepted. At the time of submission, their GMAT scores will be dealt with as follows:
Category M (Mainstream): if you obtain a satisfactory score in GMAT according to GUC criteria, you will be transformed from conditional to full acceptance.
Category G (GMAT Conditional): if obtain non-satisfactory score in GMAT according to GUC criteria, you will have to take a skills enhancement course that is tailored to the students’ needs. Therefore the course might vary in orientation (verbal vs. quantitative) and in the number of hours.
In order to avoid delay, students are urged to log on to the website (www.mba.com) to reserve an exam slot 3 months in advance, because Synergy (institute at which the students take the exam) has very limited spaces available for registration. Accordingly an official document with reservation confirmation has to be submitted to the MBA office.
As the status of admission is conditional for all students with non-satisfactory scores (category G), GUC Admission Committee re-evaluates all conditional cases after the first semester. The student’s performance in the Academic Business Skills course along with the student’s accumulated GPA are the factors upon which the GUC Admission Committee bases its decision of whether or not the student can further continue his/her study at GUC’s MBA program

- Non-business background students: graduates of all other disciplines
