Dean Donna Rapaccioli is among five new board members appointed by The Graduate Management Admission Council at its annual meeting this June. She begins her four-year term on July 1, joining her new fellow board members: William Boulding, dean and J.B. Fuqua Professor at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business; Tom Buiocchi, Silicon Valley executive and former CEO of Drobo, the data storage firm; Kenneth W. Freeman, dean and Allen Questrom Professor, Boston University’s School of Management; and Kate Klepper, associate dean of graduate business programs, Northeastern University’s D’Amore-McKim School of Business.
Perhaps most widely known for its standardized entrance exam for graduate schools and management programs worldwide, the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT exam), the Graduate Management Admission Council (gmac.com) is a nonprofit education organization of leading graduate business schools. GMAC is based in Reston, Virginia, and has regional offices in London, New Delhi and Hong Kong.
In addition to the new board members, GMAC also named Alfons Sauquet, dean of ESADE Business School, board chair.
“GMAC’s board brings an incredible level of expertise and insight to the work that we do,” said Sangeet Chowfla, GMAC president and CEO. “We are looking forward to the contributions of these new board members and to working closely with Alfons Sauquet, who knows GMAC very well, during his term as Chairman. I’m confident in the contribution they will make as GMAC implements new efforts to expand the student pipeline and deepen our commitment to being the leader in connecting the talent and aspirations of students with the education and career opportunities presented through management education.”
