Are these players required to take GMAT and go through standard procedure like the rest of us?

It's a great partner program for the players, but if they are not acdemically prepared for the program, they are just giving A's and B's for tuition paycheck.

Will players really get the learning opportunity they need for life after football, or can they do this at schools with lower profile?

Idea is noble, but it's a wait and see kinda thing to see the true effect of the program.

From the article it seemed as if it were a 4 day seminar. Not actually enrolling in the program in which a gmat would be required.

I agree with terp - this sounded more like the executive education workshops than a full degree program. Although someone did say at DAK that someone from the Bears was/is in the PT program at Kellogg.
