MIM after B.Tech

  • Posted by - pruthvi.ashok - on 2 June 2013 - 10:58am

    I am a B.Tech (EEE) graduate from India. I passed my with decent grades. I want to take up MIM in Europe after this. I will be writing GRE and IELTS. So can you please help me out with good B schools in Europe (Outside UK) which use the GRE as a application requirement and those which focus less on my engineering CGPA? I am really confused so a choice of 5 b schools would help. Thank you.

      Hey Thomas,

      Thanks for your reply. I used the search engine and narrowed my results. Presently, I want to pursue MIM in Europe. I am not looking at UK as they dont have good programs and they need a bachelors in business management. Germany too requires a bachelors so I am not focusing there.

      I am really interested in France and Spain as they have a lot of great programs. I am mainly thinking of HEC, ESADE, and IE Business School. I really want to know whether they consider only GRE for admission or do they even focus on the CGPA? As I am from an engineering background, will it still work? And, I even wanted to know about the SAI Test, is it a written exam or an interview.

      Thanking you,

        Hi there,

        thank you for your question. From my experience, these schools do offer alternative tests as well. The IE, for instance, offer its own on-campus test as an alternative for the GMAT. But to be save, I recommend you to contact the schools directly.

        Best wishes

      Hi there,

      thank you for your question. The first thing you can do to solve your question is: Use our search engine and the respective filters such that you find only programs of your preferences:

      • Program Focus: General Management
      • Teaching Mode: Full-time
      • Entry requirements: No academic background in business or economics required
      • Area: Europe (or if you want specific countries, choose those countries one by one)

      The next step is narrowing down your list according to your country or reputation preferences.

      These are the first steps that I recommend you to do now. It will give you a sense of overview of important institutions in management education. After that, you take a more finegrained perspective on each school of your narrower selection, by screening the schools' websites and contacting the schools' admissins or career service teams.

      Within this finegrained part of your investigation you should choose a lead criterion that makes your search process more efficient. For example, if you are interested in working for investment banks, a lead criterion could be that you watch out for schools where investment banks recruit. Or, if you are interested in becoming an entrepreneur you should watch out for schools that offer support for young entrepreneurs.

      Best wishes
