I don't think it works that way for most PhD applicants. You have to be interested in a specific topic and find supervisors. That means reading research and finding a topic that you would like to research from similar perspectives as a PhD supervisor.

It depends on the specialization-Is she interested in engineering or business or something inter disciplinary? Also, in PhD admissions, most universities prefer GRE than GMAT.

GMAT was fine for my PhD, but I think the real obstacle for an experienced person is showing the motivation and ability to write on a topic where they can be supervised by the school in question.
