GMAT Scandal Questions

With subscribers concerned about a cheating probe, Peg Jöbst of the Graduate Management Admissions Council chats live on July 23


By now, you probably know that some MBA applicants used a test prep site (, 7/1/08) that allegedly provided "live" questions from the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), a violation of the test's guidelines. As business schools across the country mull what they will do if any of their students are accused of gaining an unfair advantage on the GMAT, Peg Jöbst, senior vice-president of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), will take questions from the public in a live chat event on Wednesday, July 23 at 1 p.m. ET. This is your chance to ask what happened, how GMAC, the administrators of the GMAT, are handling the situation, and how this will affect you.

Jöbst is the GMAC officer responsible for the GMAT, a computerized-adaptive admission test offered annually to more than 210,000 test takers in more than 90 countries worldwide. She oversees research and development, product and services, and GMAT operations.

Before working with GMAC, Jöbst was a certified public accountant at Ernst and Young, American Institute of Public Accountants, and Arthur Young and Co. She holds a BBA degree from the University of Texas at Austin and is a CPA in the state of Texas.

Your host for this event will be Francesca Di Meglio (FrancescaBW), B-schools community manager and reporter.

Hope to see you there!

If you can't attend a live event, you can send Francesca Di Meglio questions for the guest in advance, and she'll try to pose as many as she can. Please use the subject line "GMAT Chat." Or, you may simply read the transcript that we post afterward.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
