Of course, we would like to have in-person prep courses everywhere our students want us to be. But we first have to find an instructor that knocks our socks off.
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 23, 2008
Manhattan GMAT, the nation's largest GMAT prep provider, is pleased to announce the opening of its two newest locations: Dallas and Raleigh-Durham! The opening of these locations is part of the company's continued quest to make its 9-Session prep course, featuring high teaching and curriculum standards, accessible to as many people as possible.
The new Dallas location is in the Double Tree Dallas Campbell Center. With the two inaugural Dallas prep course selling out, it is obvious that the word has spread about Manhattan GMAT's content-based prep courses and high scoring instructors.
The Raleigh-Durham location, just minutes from the Raleigh-Durham Int'l Airport, has seen success similar to its Dallas counterpart. Andrew Yang, CEO of Manhattan GMAT, stated, "Robert Wilburn, our Raleigh-Durham instructor, has been with us for quite a few years now. He is one of our most popular and experienced instructors and we are ecstatic he is able to teach in Raleigh-Durham."
Many individuals interested in Manhattan GMAT note that they heard about the prep programs from friends who previously took prep classes with the company. Yang says of this trend, "We love hearing that satisfied students are spreading the word about our prep programs, as it's the best sign we're doing a good job."
The Dallas and Raleigh-Durham centers signify the 10th and 11th major centers for Manhattan GMAT. In addition to continual programming in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., San Francisco and Silicon Valley, the company also offers Live Online prep courses available to students all over the world.
While Manhattan GMAT's growth may be fast, Yang says it is important to note that the company opens new markets only after qualified instructors are found and trained for several months. He goes on to say "Of course, we would like to have in-person prep courses everywhere our students want us to be. But we first have to find an instructor that knocks our socks off." Each teacher is required to score in the 99th percentile (760+) on the exam and have extensive teaching experience. Of those who have these qualifications, an average of 1-in-5 is hired to teach prep classes.
This seemingly shows why the expansion is painstaking and deliberate, yet students of Manhattan GMAT in Dallas and Raleigh-Durham will agree -- all great things are worth the wait.
