Noodle Launches a Smarter Search for MBA Programs
NEW YORK, May 22, 2014 – Just as the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) releases its employment numbers for new MBA graduates, Noodle announces an innovative new tool to help prospective students find the right MBA program. The unique Noodle algorithm finds schools that are the right fit for an individual student based on factors like academic scores, industry, specialty, type of program, and location.
Noodle guides students to the intersection of what they want in an MBA program and where they can gain admission. We take information about a student—like test scores and college GPA—alongside that student’s preferences, and create a list of schools in order of fit. Noodle delivers this personalized search experience using data from Bloomberg Businessweek, The Princeton Review, and mba.com.
Noodle provides the most targeted, relevant MBA advice available to prospective students. By using admissions data on each individual MBA program within a business school—full-time, part-time, executive, and online—the search realistically reflects a student’s chances of getting in. Second, the Noodle search considers which programs graduate students into particular industries, giving graduates an advantage in the job market.
“Long-term outcomes should be paramount when considering a graduate program, and GMAC’s employment numbers show that an MBA is a great bet right now,” said Noodle CEO John Katzman. “Prospective students should use Noodle to find the right fit in an MBA program and maximize their career success.”
