GMAT versus Alternatives: Predictive Validity Evidence from Central Europe and the Middle East
Koys, Daniel
Journal of Education for Business, v85 n3 p180-185 2010
The author found that the GPA at the end of the MBA program is most accurately predicted by the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) and the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). MBA GPA is also predicted, though less accurately, by the Scholastic Level Exam, a mathematics test, undergraduate GPA, and previous career progression. If it is not practical to demand the GMAT overseas, very accurate predictions can be made by combining undergraduate GPA and the TOEFL. Less accurate, though still useful predictions can be made by combining undergraduate GPA and a mathematics test, or by combining undergraduate GPA and a measure of career success.
