a Master in Management is for graduates, with a maximum of up to a year of work experience. If you want a general management postgraduate education, then the MBA is the right program.
Read my MIM eBook to better understand that differences, the different program types and how to find the "right" program and school for you.
GRE and GMAT - here you need to check the entry requirements of your favorite schools. Usually, they allow for both tests and this means that there is no preference for the on or the other.
Visit www.mba-compass.com to find programs and use the Search Engine Filter "Entry requirements" to select proggrams that require the GMAT/GRE or not.

I am going to apply for MIM in some business schools for fall 2016 session.There is a major problem in my profile,i took a gap of 2 years right after my graduation to prepare for a highly competitive exam for top government administration jobs,which i was not able to clear.
Though my GPA is average but i have good number of extra-curricular activities(Literary Events,Music competitions,sports,Anchoring,Organizing events and festivals,national level science projects etc.).As per as your book i will apply for schools which gives high weightage to them.
My question is that how badly are the gap years going to affect my application.even though the exam i was preparing for, has a success rate of 500 in a million,will it still be considered a failure .
And,can i mention extra curricular activities i did in my high school,even though its been a while.
I am looking forward to your reply

if your GPA is average and if your extra-curricular records are good, I would apply for schools that do not over-emphasize grades but acknowledge such activities as something valuable for a Master's class.
Read my "MIM Entry Requirements" eBook carefully - here you have the entry requirement profiles of 54 schools / MIM programs worldwide. The information provided here is based on a survey where I asked the schools about their entry requirements. You will find all their answers published in my eBook and decide which schools fits your profile and which not.
Here is the list of schools whose MIM programs are included in the eBook:
Aix-Marseille Graduate School of Management - IAEAlpen-Adria Universität KlagenfurtAntwerp Management SchoolAudencia Nantes School of ManagementBocconi UniversityBrunel UniversityCatolica Lisbon School of Business and EconomicsCNAM - Institute of ManagementCologne Business SchoolCranfield School of ManagementDeusto Business School - University of DeustoDurham University Business SchoolEADA Business School BarcelonaEDHEC Business SchoolESADEESCP Europe Business SchoolESMTESSEC Business SchoolFontys University of Applied SciencesFrankfurt School of Finance & ManagementHEC LausanneHEC PARIS School of ManagementHFU Business School J8- University FurtwangenIAE Bordeaux University School of ManagementICN Business School Nancy-MetzIE Business SchoolJohannes Kepler UniversityKuehne Logistics UniversityLondon Business SchoolLondon School of Economics and Political Science, Department of ManagementManchester Business School, The University of ManchesterMGSM - Macquarie Graduate School of ManagementMIP Politecnico di MilanoMunich Business SchoolNottingham Business School, Noittingham Trent UniversityNyenrode Business UniversiteitPhilipps- Universität MarburgS P Jain School of Global ManagmentSaunders College of Business at RITSPbU, Graduate School of ManagementStockholm School of EconomicsTrinity College Dublin, IrelandUniversità della Svizzera italianaUniversità di BolognaUniversity of BradfordUniversity of Cologne, Faculty of Management, Economics and Social SciencesUniversity of Economics, PragueUniversity of Erlangen-NurembergUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of Manitoba, Asper School of BusinessUniversity of Trento, ItalyUniversity of WindsorWarsaw School of EconomicsWHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management
As for your other question, will your 2 years gap be a disadvantage - this depends on the school (and how open the admissions managers are for unusual tracks) and on how convincing you will be to persuade them that these 2 years were not "lost time" but were a necessary step on your career planning.

I am currently pursuing my ba program from Delhi University. I am in my first year. We are offered a variety of subjects and we have to choose as per our interest. I have taken economics as one of my core subjects.Here's my question:
I heard there are some institute who require eco or business as a subject or degree. So am I eligible for all MIM college or I have to go for some other degree.
Posted by thomas.graf on 07/03/18 11:14am
some MIM programs require a first degree in business or economics while others do not. If you study economics in your undergrads, I recommend you to choose a MIM program that requires a first degree in business or economics. By this you will avoid a repetition in your MIM of what you studied already in your BA.
To find MIM programs that specifically require a first degree in business or economics, please choose the filter "ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS" in the MIM Compass search engine at https://www.mim-compass.com and select "First degree in business or economics required".

10th: 88.8% 12th: 70% Grad, Bachelors in Engineering: 60%(overall 8 semester)work ex: 24 months+ counting.will more than 24 months harm my application?IELTS: 8 overallGRE: expecting 310- 320
With my CGPA on the lower side, will my SOP, GRE and TOEFL make a change to the probability of getting into university?
Posted by thomas.graf on 09/26/18 12:32pm
in my my survey "The MIM - Entry Requirements for the Master in Management", you find the detailed and original admissions criteria of 53 Master in Management programs, and particularly the GMAT section.
This will answer your question.

Sir!My B.E CGPA is 8.0My 12th 87.16GMAT 678I can apply for MIM Program in St.gallen University
Posted by thomas.graf on 10/13/19 12:41pm
first you should investigate what the University of St.Gallen expects. Then you can compare this with your own records.
On the University of St.Gallen SIM Admissions Page you find the admissions criteria and the respective weights.
The average GMAT score of the Master of Finance and Banking students can be found on the St.Gallen Facts Page. It is 723.
I could imagine that the SIM students GMAT score (average) is similarly high.
But this does not mean that your result is too low to get accepted. It just means that your score is below average and that you need to convince the St.Gallen team on the other admissions dimensions.
