Manhattan GMAT Continues to Expand in the U.S.


We recently discussed our move towards a more international market, with online classes geared towards students in East Asia and India as well as in-person classes in London and Paris.

However, while we are expanding abroad, we are also continuing to focus on our new markets in the U.S. We’ve recently started offering classes in Miami as well as San Antonio and we are also expanding to Salt Lake City in the near future.

Because of our strong belief in high instructor quality, we only expand where we find instructors who meet our stringent qualifications. If you want to see us expand further, and you know of anybody in the locations listed on our instructor hiring page, be sure to send them our way! Our application process is tough, but in the end, both our students and our instructors benefit!
