The College of Business at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will offer a GMAT strategy workshop from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 30 in Howard L. Hawks Hall, Room 202.

Led by Stephanie Espy, founder and president of Atlanta-based MathSP Strategies and Problem-Solving, the workshop will prepare prospective graduate students for the Graduate Management Admission Test, which measures verbal, mathematical and analytical writing skills.

Named one of four inspiring women in STEM by The Huffington Post, Espy will discuss how to decode the computer-adaptive scoring model, develop and execute on verbal and quantitative strategies, and prepare a study plan to conquer the GMAT.

“Through this workshop, Stephanie will help you write a personal plan to get a strong score or improve your former score on the GMAT,” said Jake Messersmith, executive director of graduate programs and associate professor of management. “She works through all the sections of the test and helps you become more efficient in answering the questions.”

Students can register online. The deadline is Sept. 25. Registration is $125 and includes the Official Guide for GMAT Review 2017 book, continental breakfast and an information packet. If participants already own the book, registration is $90.

“The test-taking tips were very helpful and essential to my preparation,” said Tyrell Ross, a master of business administration student at Nebraska and past workshop participant. “Once you know how to approach certain questions, the amount of time needed to answer decreases significantly.”

Doors open at 7 a.m., and check-in begins at 7:30. Parking is available in the 14th and Avery parking garage. For more information, contact the College of Business' Office of Graduate Programs at 402-472-2338.
