Hi,

There are a few colleges that don’t require GMAT (like Erasmus School of Economics) and I’m unsure if I should be applying to them. I’m looking to apply for the 2019 fall intake.
My background:
I come from an Engineering background(IT) have passed my CFA Level 2. I am looking to pursue Masters in Finance or Masters in Quant Finance in Europe.

Erasmus does require a GMAT (+600)

IE doesn't require it, they have their own test

However, you should definitely take it if you have time! There is plenty of time to apply, as most (european) schools only close their application in may!

Very few schools don't require a GMAT. Handful of US programs will not require it if you went to the school for UG, had a number of years of work experience, etc. It is very rare and mostly for lower ranked schools.

Thats fair for the US Based programs. But I was asking mostly about the European based programs. Apart from HEC Paris and St. Gallen, they don't seem to require it.

Best of luck. Without real work experience or a top GPA for a top school, any program not requiring a GMAT/GRE is probably fishing for candidates.

With all due respect, I think Erasmus School of Economics has a solid program. What do you think ?

Are you asking a question or getting defensive? You ask which schools don’t need a standardized test score, you get answers and get defensive. I am sorry, but without a full profile, you’re an Indian student with a L2 CFA, hardly stand out.

Hi,

I'm sorry if my language came across as defensive. I am genuinely concerned about the very same factor regarding schools not asking for GMAT scores. From what ever I've read of it, Erasmus School of Economics does have a solid background and reputation. There are several other European Schools which aren't asking for GMAT. I am not denying that the Americans schools require it and going to one that doesn't ask for one would be risky(and probably fisihing for candidates). But the story seems entirely different in Europe. Most Schools recommend but don't require it per say. Hence, I needed clarification regarding whether to apply to such schools.
