    Hi,

    This is AR from India. I am a final year B.Tech student and am applying for the MiM programs in the following schools:

    1. Esade
    2. ESSEC
      3.ESCP
      4.DUKE
      5.Rotterdam
      6.Audencia

    Profile:

    Studying in one of the top 10 private engineering institutes in the country
    GPA: 8.65/10
    GMAT: 650(Q-48, V-31)
    Decent Extra-curriculars
    Co-founder and CEO of a merchandise based start-up
    No Work ex.(still a student)
    2 Internships in top technological firms as an intern software engineer

    Now my queries are:

    1. I am a bit disappointed with the GMAT score because I thought that I could easily score above 700. Should I retake the exam?
    2. My dream school is ESSEC. Now I wanted to know whether I stand a chance there with a score of 650? (Indian applicants are way too much competitive!)
    3. I have already got admits from ESADE and AUDENCIA. But I still want to aim for top 5 schools. Where does ESADE stand, when viewed from a global standpoint?
    4. Should I apply to HEC Paris with this score?
    5. What is the average score required at Duke?

    Please fell free to answer my queries. It will be very helpful to me!

    Regards,
    AR

      Hi there,

      have you read my eBook "The MIM Entry Requirements" already? Here you find the requirements including the GMAT score of 55 international business schools - including ESSEC. The eBook summarizes a survey that I conducted among these schools.

      Best wishes,
      Thomas
