MBAs by GMAT Score

It’s inevitable, wanting to go to a top business school means investing the time and energy into taking the GMAT. While some MBA programs accept the GRE or the EA as a substitute, the majority of programs prefer, or require, the GMAT as part of their application requirements. Whether you have a preferred MBA program in mind, or you are just waiting to see your GMAT outcome before beginning the application process, knowing the minimum and average standards of the top B-Schools can help streamline and narrow the studying, test taking, and application process. 

We have compiled a list of the top MBA programs in the world and have listed out their average GMAT scores based on the previous year(s) acceptances. It is important to keep in mind when deciding on where to apply that your GMAT score is not the be-all-and-end-all. Admissions committees often base their decisions on the whole application and not just the applicant’s GMAT score. Your GPA, previous work experience, references, and application essays are just as important to your chances of getting in as your overall GMAT score.
