    Hi,

    I am a software engineer with a work exp of just over 14 months. I was looking for MiM options in Australia with duration of not over 12-15 months. However, my priority is obtaining a scholarship for the same. Is it necessary to give GMAT for application? Also, is it true that the job scenario in Australia is better post masters as compared to European market.

    Many Regards,
    Ankita
