The 2010 European Geographic Trend Report, GMAC’s (Graduate Management Admission Council) most recent published report, shows a 90% increase in the number of GMAT score reports sent to European business schools since 2006.
This increase is due to the fact that more Europeans are taking the GMAT than ever before and more are choosing to attend European business schools. More non-European applicants are also sending their scores to Europe in greater numbers.
Some of the key findings in the report include:
- During the 2010 testing year (July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010), 11% of all GMAT score reports were sent to European business schools, compared to 7.5% in 2006. In terms of the actual number of reports, that’s 85,262 reports in 2010 compared to 45,079 reports in 2006.
- In 2010, Europeans sent out 42% more GMAT reports to b-schools around the world than they did in 2006; and they sent proportionately fewer reports to the U.S. last year than they did four years ago.
- The European countries that received the most GMAT score reports this year are the U.K., France, the Netherlands, and Spain.
- One-third of the GMAT score reports sent to European institutions were sent by Indian and Chinese citizens.
- Germans sent more score reports to European schools in 2010 than did citizens of any other European country.
