    I did my under graduation in Information technology in India. My CGPA is 7.9 on 10
    My profile overview :

    Currently working as a management trainee in my Family Business, a leading financial services company in India and has investments in 100+ private companies in India. ( Financial sector and Venture capitalist ) 6 months.

    Internships : 1 technical internship for the Government of TN. ( Ministry of Higher Education )
    1 Business internship for a pioneer agro based FMCG company. Helped the company build a successful business model to regain the lost monopoly in the sector. The proposed model is in place now.

    Entrepreneurship experience : Floated a company during my under graduation and sold it to an industry major within 9 months of its operations for 1million USD. ( 200 times investment )

    Campus activities : 1. Panelist in Entrepreneurship Cell of the university.
    2. First President of the Students Association in the campus. I initiated an idea of a global technical fest and hosted it successfully.
    3. Campus placement representative.

    I took my GRE test in 2010 especially to prove my quant skills. and scored 680 in Quant. and scored 370 in verbal. In the new scale it is 289.

    my TOEFL score is 108.

    I applied to Imperial Warwick business School and City business school for Masters in Management as those schools don't ask for GRE / GMAT scores.

    considering my profile can you please suggest me schools which dont take GRE scores that importantly and which may give a conditional offer asking me to retake also.

      Hi Prakash,

      nice to hear from you. You have a great CV in terms of professional experience.

      In which country or area do you want to do a Master in Management? Is the UK your favorite as indicated by mentioning Warwick Business School and Cass Business School (City University London)?

      Best wishes

      Actually i was researching for schools who dont ask for a GRE or GMAT score. So i short listed those schools.

      I am not country specific. In US all schools ask for a GRE / GMAT score. If some of the top schools, give me a conditional offer with some constraint on my GRE / GMAT score also will be great.

      I am also planning to drop in my application to Grenoble in France.

      Are there schools in the ivey league tables who dont ask for competitive scores. ?

        Hi Prakash,

        I have no overview on which of the hundreds of MIM-schools worldwide require the GMAT and who not... nor can I say if they would provide you with a conditional offer.

        We are operating a survey within the next months, however, that includes also the GMAT question. Results probably will be out in May.

        As for the moment, I only know that none of the following schools requires the GMAT: Hult international Business School, Ashridge Business School, Manchester Business School, and Warwick Business School. But this is just a small group and you may find many more.

        Best wishes
