IRVING, Texas, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --The National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) announced today that it is launching a new GMAT Prep Scholarship Program in partnership with Veritas Prep.
Through this program, NSHMBA plans to help increase the number of Hispanics who earn high GMAT scores and complete a graduate business education. The program will provide scholarship recipients with a choice of in-person or live online coursework from Veritas Prep's top instructors who have scored in the 99th percentile on their actual GMAT exams, 12 GMAT lesson books and a variety of additional valuable benefits designed to help the scholarship recipients achieve their highest possible GMAT scores.
"Hispanics are the largest and fastest-growing demographic in the U.S., and yet only 4% of them have completed a graduate or professional degree program, which indicates that our students continue to face persistent obstacles to the attainment of a graduate-level education," said Manny Gonzalez, CEO of NSHMBA. He added "With this new scholarship program, we aim to remove one of the biggest obstacles to an MBA for deserving Hispanic students. With our partner Veritas Prep, we will continue in our mission of getting more Hispanics accepted into their desired schools by helping them get higher GMAT scores, which are incredibly important in admission decisions."
