The school that produces the highest-scoring GMAT test-takers in the world is Swarthmore College, according to new research conducted by Bloomberg Businessweek.

As part of the 2012 Best Business Schools ranking, recent MBA graduates from 114 top business schools were asked both where they earned their undergraduate degrees and what they scored on the GMAT, the standardized test primarily used for admission to graduate business programs. The numbers were averaged to produce a score for each undergraduate institution. Schools with fewer than eight responses were eliminated from consideration. Data are for graduates only; unsuccessful applicants who took the GMAT were not included.
