Options with GMAT


About GMAT

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a computer adaptive test (CAT) intended to assess certain analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in written English for use in admission to a graduate management program, such as an MBA. The GMAT exam is administered in standardized test centres in 112 countries around the world GMAT course modules are more than just test preparation courses. We appreciate what is good and believe that the course content of GMAT goes a long way in developing the approach and attitude of a professional manager even in a young undergraduate student. Our modules have exposure of our MWM programs which make the student ready for more than the test prep part of GMAT. 

GMAT is accepted by over 132 B-schools in India and by over 2100 Universities globally.

The score stays valid for 5 years.

GMAT for Students with 0-2 years work Ex:

The Master in Management (MiM) refers to a special type of postgraduate program that provides general management knowledge for graduates or recent graduates with only little work experience. The focus is more theoretical aiming to build a foundation for aspiring manager with little work experience.  Masters in Management usually grant a Master of Science or a Master of Arts. Ranking bodies such as the Financial Times use the term "Master in Management", for instance, to rank such programs, even though the programs themselves are named differently. Though it has been around for over two decades (quite popular in Europe for a long time), only now is being recognized by countries all over the world, with more and more universities offering the degree. Needless to say with colleges such as Duke, Esade, HEC, LBS, LSE & Bocconi offering the MiM as flagship courses. 

They are comparable to the 2 year MBA programs in India and jobs on offer are usually that for analysts. The courses from good institutes have international recognition and usually take less than half the time and costs of a regular MBA at the same institute. 

One could look to try ISB Hyderabad's EEO (Early Entry Option) as well.

Some work experience maybe appreciated (not mandatory) and up to 6 months may also encouraged by several schools. But if one accumulates too much work experience then they may be urged to apply for the MBA to benefit more. Most US MiM schools have a cutoff at 1 year of work experience, after which they are disqualified from applying.
