So how do you get from point A to point B? Here is a list of a few resources to help you obtain your Master’s degree:
- GMAT resources: The first step toward graduate school is the GMAT, the standardized test that determines admission. If you are gearing up to prepare for taking the GMAT, here are some great resources: The Kaplan GMAT Test Premier houses a wealth of information regarding the GMAT. There are other prep books available, but the Kaplan is probably the most well-known book, which offers six practice tests in order to adequately prepare you for the test. Test prep courses are offered in both in-person and online formats. Daniels offers a GMAT prep course once each quarter. To learn more about this test, visit our events listing. Personal tutors are also a great way to gain one-on-one training to be successful on the test. GMAT tutors are typically best found through local online classified ads.
- Financial aid: Paying for school can be tough, and for many students, financial aid is a necessary tool to get them where they need to be professionally.

- Career opportunities: It is a good idea to start looking into career opportunities well before you graduate. Each graduate school program should offer career and student services to help you get an edge on the competition. Here at Daniels, we offer Executive Mentoring programs to put you in touch with experts in your field of interest. We also offer the tools to explore career options, prepare and hone your interview skills, grow networking opportunities, and participate in professional development opportunities.
Update: As of fall 2021 the Daniels College of Business is a GMAT/GRE-optional institution, meaning each candidate must determine whether one of these exams will support their candidacy and merit. Scores from these standardized tests should be submitted with your application if you feel that they will strengthen your application.
