According to a GMAC press release, European b-schools are becoming more popular and European students are attending b-schools in larger numbers. The number of GMAT European test-takers increased 30% since 2005, reports a GMAC study. GMAT volume hit a high of 265,613 test-takers; 23,224 of those were European test-takers.

While only 6.9% of test reports were sent to Europe five years ago, last year saw a new high of 10%, sent in highest volume to France and the United Kingdom. Most of these applicants are European themselves, who are showing an increased interest in business school in general and business school on their home turf in particular. The U.S. saw fewer European applicants this year than in the past.

Popular European MBA programs among European GMAT test takers in 2009 include INSEAD, London Business School, and IESE Business School. For more information on these and other top European and U.S. b-schools, check out's B-School Zones.
