As business professionals consider getting an MBA degree, Oklahoma Baptist University is seeking to help them prepare for a required graduate exam.
OBU’s International Graduate School is offering preparatory workshops for the Graduate Management Admissions Test in July. The workshops will meet from 6-10 p.m. on the first four Mondays in July. OBU IGS is located at 111 N. Harrison in downtown Oklahoma City.
The GMAT is required for application to most MBA degree programs, including the OBU IGS 18-month graduate program. Marian Combs, OBU director of graduate programs, said a review of basic concepts can significantly increase test results.
“The content of the workshops is progressive throughout the series,” Combs said. “The sessions include practice testing, helpful hints, strategic content review and strategies for dealing with test anxiety."
The July 2 session will cover arithmetic and sentence correction. On July 9, participants will receive instruction on algebra and reading comprehension. Word problems and critical thinking will be discussed on July 16. The July 23 session will focus on geometry and analytical writing.
Cost is $50 each session. Contact Combs at 405-319-8470 for more information.
