Xavier Univ Bhubaneshwar is now part of GMAC

Graduate Management Admission Council welcomes XUB and two other leading business schools

The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), a global association of leading graduate business schools, has welcomed three new members. The addition of Xavier University Bhubaneswar, ESCP Europe and WHU–Otto Beisheim School of Management brings GMAC’s total membership to 225.

Select business schools are invited to apply for GMAC membership by its Board of Directors. Each school goes through a comprehensive application process that addresses the sustained commitments to supporting GMAC’s mission: providing the tools and information necessary for schools and talent to discover and evaluate one another.

“GMAC continues to strengthen its membership of graduate business schools that are not only working to address the changing needs of students, but also understanding the landscape and what can be done to better prepare students for their careers,” said Sangeet Chowfla, president and CEO of GMAC.

“Each of these three schools brings a unique approach from its area of the world. The perspectives they collectively bring to the Council will help further our mission and work to identify the opportunities and challenges faced by our industry.”

In addition to meeting membership criteria, each school has made a specific pledge to help GMAC meet its mission.

One of India’s leading management schools, Xavier University Bhubaneswar believes in GMAC’s mission that every candidate deserves access to high quality graduate management education. Their GMAC membership symbolises the school’s commitment to providing world-class quality b-school programs at their campus in Bhubaneswar to deserving candidates from around the world, in part by utilising GMAC’s products and services.
