GMAC Leverages BenchPrep to Deliver Executive Assessment Prep Program

The association of leading graduate business schools expands its partnership with BenchPrep to provide an increasingly authentic prep experience

CHICAGO, Sept. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Graduate Management Admission Council® (GMAC), a global non-profit association of leading business schools, is expanding their strategic partnership with BenchPrep, the comprehensive learner success platform that puts the learning experience first, to deliver simulated section adaptive practice assessments with predicted results within GMAC’s Executive Assessment Official Prep offerings.

GMAC, the makers of the GMAT exam, created the Executive Assessment to evaluate the real-world skills of professionals who are applying for admission into Executive MBA (EMBA) programs.  To help EMBA program candidates prepare for the Executive Assessment, GMAC leverages BenchPrep’s enterprise SaaS platform to offer Executive Assessment Official Prep.

BenchPrep’s learning and assessment delivery platform is designed to improve test takers’ confidence and provide an authentic learning experience for EMBA candidates.  As part of the new Executive Assessment Official Prep experience, BenchPrep is now delivering simulated section adaptive practice assessments through its platform that mirror the exact flow of the Executive Assessment.

“By working with BenchPrep, we are able to provide a highly relevant simulated practice assessment experience,” said Manish Dharia, Director of Product Development at GMAC. “This helps candidates feel more confident about being prepared to take the Executive Assessment and enhances their preparation in a highly relevant way.”

BenchPrep’s learning platform helps education and training organizations improve and accelerate learner success by streamlining content management, instructional design, educator tools, analytics dashboards, and reporting into one comprehensive solution. Learners get the flexibility to access learning materials anytime, anywhere, across all devices. By incorporating gamification, microlearning, and data driven personalization in its learning platform, BenchPrep makes learning engaging, efficient, and effective.

“This exciting extension of our partnership with GMAC provides a tremendous opportunity for us to help candidates prepare for the Executive Assessment like never before,” said Ashish Rangnekar, CEO of BenchPrep.  “BenchPrep prides itself on delivering innovative solutions for our customers so they can administer the best learning and assessment programs. With GMAC and others expanding their partnerships with BenchPrep, it demonstrates the incredible impact we’re having on the candidate prep experience.”

BenchPrep and GMAC launched the simulated section adaptive practice exam with predictive score on the Executive Assessment in April 2018.
