Hi there!
I'm new here and lack of understanding about Gmat and MBA. Now I'm fourth year postgraduate student and I will finish my study in June 2018. Since I'm not a native English speaker, I took an IELTS exam and got 7 band score in june this year. Recently I have heard about Gmat which is mandatory for mba. But then I realized that job experience is also crucial for applying MBA. Unfortunately, I have no experience yet. So after finishing in July 2018, what can I do with IELTS 7 band score + GMAT 650. I will be very grateful for any advice and suggestions. Thanks beforehand for your answers and also for awesome forum ))

Without working experience an MBA is not really realistic as most business schools will require you to have a minimum of 2 years of work experience in order to have a good chance of admission. You will also benefit more from an MBA if you do have that. Therefore, I would recommend a Master's in Management for you instead. You can read more about MiM programs and what differentiates them from MBA programs here: https://aringo.com/masters-in-management/

Hope that helps!

Your GMAT score can last you five years so I would tuck that away while you go out and secure some work experience. This is a crucial aspect ofMBA experience. Also, in that time you can work on your english and improving your GMAT to maximize your competitiveness when you are actually ready to apply!

Basically, before you can apply for an MBA you need relevant work experience. 3 years would be a good minimum.

Best,
