""GMAT was looking to be a daunting task since I had never taken a computer based test of such a time duration. But the Experts' advice really worked and took the fear out of my mind. The study material was extremely good as it contains the relevant and the best of all topics from various sources and at a very reasonable rate.Hence the quality of the material far exceeds the cost. AWA template recommended is in sync with what is expected from GMAT takers and covers all aspects of analytical writing evaluators are looking for. All this helped to me score a good 740 with a scaled score of 5.0 in AWA."

In 1919, President Samuel Palmer Brooks pioneered the idea of establishing a Business School at Baylor. The efforts finally bore fruits in 1923, when the board accepted President Brook’s recommendations and authorized him to take the necessary steps towards establishing a department of business administration. The board once again approved the establishment of a new business department and named the school as the School of Commerce and Business Administration due to the rise in university enrollment. The School offered its first Bachelor’s degree in 1924. In 1926, the School shifted into a wooden building in the campus. Dr. Lang worked towards raising the standards of the curriculum to acquire AACSB accreditation and the School achieved full accreditation in 1959. The necessity for more space led to construction of a new building and Earl Hankamer, one of the board members contributed $500,000 to cover the costs of construction. In 1960, the building was completed and the School’s name was changed to Hankamer School of Business.
