Where Will a Good GMAT Score Get You?

With so much talk about GMAT preparation and planning you’re probably wondering to yourself, where will a good GMAT score get me? To answer this question, look no further than the Merchant GMAT Hall of Fame. There are many recent Merchant GMAT alumni who were in your shoes just a few months ago and are working for successful organizations all over the world. You, as students, should take advantage of all the resources on the Merchant GMAT website to find out where you want to go professionally. 


Many Merchant GMAT alumni, such as Mel Faxon, have started their own businesses after earning their MBA degrees. Mel is the co-founder and COO of Hey Mirza, a company that helps parents financially plan for having children. Mel Faxon, like many other Merchant GMAT alumni, is ambitious and used her MBA degree to start a company she was passionate about. With a good GMAT score, the possibilities are endless what you can achieve in the business world. 


Other students prefer to work for large corporations after excelling in their MBA programs. Andy Mondino is a former Merchant GMAT student who is currently earning his MBA at the prestigious Booth School of Business at The University of Chicago. While betting on an MBA, he worked for 5 years for Mastercard, the multinational financial services company. Andy used his GMAT score to get into Booth and today he’s taking advantage of professional opportunities in Argentina. This is just one of the many examples of where a good GMAT score will get you. 


Many Merchant GMAT students may question how good their GMAT score is, especially if they score lower than their peers. However, there are so many great MBA programs across the world that will help them succeed. Students should be confident in their scores and trust their abilities when applying to business schools. Applying to business schools you think are out of your range is a good idea because class sizes fluctuate from year to year.

- "Preparing for the GMAT and applying for an MBA requires a tremendous commitment, and that doesn’t take into consideration the personal challenges our students must face when deciding if they want to leave their friends, families, and native cultures behind to advance their careers abroad. An MBA is not for everyone and that’s precisely what makes this advanced degree so valuable. 

For these reasons, we at Merchant only work with students we are confident have what it takes to succeed throughout the preparation and application processes.

Given an increased demand in our services, we do not have the ability to offer free consultation services to unserious applicants. If you are interested in learning more about Merchant, please fill out this form. After reviewing your LinkedIn profile, our team will be in touch with you if we feel you are a good fit for our services."
