schools that do not require GMAT/GRE

  • Posted by - pinky - on 17 April 2014 - 4:17am

    I recently came to know that the GMAT equivalent of my GRE score(307) is 530. I'm really disappointed as I wanted to apply for EDHEC school but their minimum GMAT requirement is 550. I'm not very keen on taking GRE exam again. So I have decided to look for schools that do not require GMAT/GRE. Can you please list out few such schools?

    Thanks and Regards,

      Hi there,

      in my eyes, you have four options:

      1. Search for programs that do not require the GMAT.
      2. Search for programs that require the GMAT but offer an on-campus test as alternative (the latter may be easier)
      3. Apply for programs with GMAT scores close to your scores (e.g. EDHEC) even if your score is a bit lower - maybe they still accept you.
      4. Do the GMAT (or re-do the GRE).

      If you search for programs that do not require the GMAT or GRE at all, you should find a lot of them easily as about half of all MIM programs don't require these tests (Source: MIM Survey 2013).

      Finally: Read the MIM ebook. It will provide you with a profound understanding of MIM programs and help you in finding programs.

      Best wishes
