Profile Evaluation - Brazilian [#permalink] New post 09 Aug 2013, 10:07
Hi,

I am a Brazilian male, 28 years old.

Graduated in Economics in a top local university, also took a MSc. in Economics in a top local business school, which was a part-time/executive program (night/weekends).

I have 6.5 years of work experience, 2.5 in IB, 2.5 in asset management, and 1.5 (present job) as investment analyst in a pension fund (working with portfolio management and fixed income trading); these are all brazilian companies.

I also passed the CFA Level 1 Exam this June, and I am thinking about focusing on the GMAT this semester before studying for the Level 2 next year.

What GMAT score would I need to get to a top 10 school in the US?
What about European schools (like Oxford, Cambridge, Insead, LBS, and Iese)?

Thanks!

Hello,

Thanks for your inquiry. As you start to build your application, it’s important to remember that GMAT scores are just one component of a strong candidacy. Admissions officers will evaluate your academic history, professional background, extracurriculars and leadership potential to determine whether you fit well with their program. That being said, as a first step, you should target a GMAT or GRE score that is at or above the median for these programs. Check out USNews and World Report to find average GMAT scores for the top 10 programs, or visit the program’s website.

You will also want to aim for verbal or quantitative scores above the 80th percentile. Check out this article about test scores and GPA requirements on our website at for more information visit the planning tab of the MBA Prep School website.


If you have any more questions please reply here. If you’d like more direct assistance with your application, please PM me.

All Best,
Krista
