GMAT as a predictor of earnings

GMAT as a predictor of earnings

I get asked all the time if high GMAT scores predict performance on-the-job, or career success. This is actually a tough question, since it is difficult to benchmark, and there are lots of uncertainties to factor in, among others luck. So while I won’t attempt to analyse this issue here, I did find a strong correlation to another area: money.

I have observed this empirically for years, and today found another  study to back it up (J. Wai http://qz.com/169771). It claims  that even within a highly select group of Fortune 500 CEOs, individuals who attended MBA programs with higher average GMAT scores were significantly more likely to have higher compensation.

For those inclined to really “follow the money”, here is a list of the top US schools by GMAT score. Significant here is that NYU’s rise continues, this is an amazing program that many applicants want to be a part of. My advice: go to a student day, talk to an alum, and get busy with GMAT…
