HI, a GMAT score of 700+ is always beneficial. There are other important criteria as well- impressive and relevant essays and resume, clear career goals and a real need for MBA from the particular b-schools where you are applying.

Given the avg GMAT score for these schools hover around 700, you should aim to exceed that score to confidently apply. Obviously the better score you get the better you can help yourself out in the eyes of admissions

Hi navsingh333,

The average GMAT score was the Singaporean programs in question is above the 700 mark and considering the fact that the expectations from an Indian male are always higher, you must be aiming for upwards of 720.

Having said the above, the GMAT, though extremely important, is not the only criteria that will define your chances. A lot will also depend on your overall profile, the essays your present, and the clarity with which you define your career goals. Feel free to reach out in case you wish to discuss these components in detail, as well.

All the best! :)

As an Indian applicant, you should definitely target 20 to 30 score more from the average GMAT. As suggested by mates you should definitely target 700+. But its just not the number's game which will get you an admit.

Showcase your achievements that you have achieved during the tenure of your career, showcase your leadership qualities which is one of most important quality that most of the top looks into the applicant. You have to represent yourself in a unique way through your essays.

1) A 730+ will be needed to get your foot in the door (I differ from my mates here because you have only 1 year of experience, and that too in sales. Assuming you have had Performance reviews in the top quartile you will need as much strength from all your factors (including GMAT score) as possible.
2) Meaningful essays that make you stand out, and strong LORs from the right people will help you get admission.

Hope that helps.

I would really need to know a bit more about your profile (for instance what school did you go to for your bachelors? What has your promotion path been at work? Extra-curricular leadership work? Male/female? That said, from what you wrote, I would target 700 as a nice baseline.

Best,
Scott

Hello,
I'm an Indian applicant interested in applying to European B schools for their Jan 2020 intake.

My profile is briefly as follows and would be grateful for any inputs or suggestions you may have.

Education - 5 year law from Bangalore University and professionally qualified as a Company Secretary.

Work experience - (5+years) worked as a consultant with a local law firm and company secretary firm for about 2+ years. Trained to be a company secretary with a chartered accountancy firm for 1+ years. Currently working with a fortune 500 company as in house counsel and CS since 2+ years. Was promoted before1.5 years. I work with the senior management and manage the Board of Directors.

My exposure has been in litigation, financial reporting, consumer and service related matters, business negotiations, Board Management, government reporting, legal compliances and all regular legal work. I also worked as a grammar consultant for a Swiz based company that taught English to non-English speakers across the world. (this was during my initial career days). I have international exposure based on the contracts I have worked on with my company,but no travel abroad (just a vacation).

I'm yet to begin working on my applications and will be able to apply only for by April.

Based on the above, any inputs are welcome if you can spare the time. Thank you.

Hi MadhaviRS,

Thanks for writing in.

It is good to see you start off in advance :-)

Two things will be crucial in your pursuit:
- GMAT: Aim for the 99th percentile as the same will raise the confidence of the Admissions Committee in your academic abilities at this point in your career. Needless to say, the higher the score the better it will be.
-Essays: Spend a good amount of time deliberating on your need for MBA, what you intend to post the same, and why the schools you are targetting. Everything will need to be tied up seamlessly through well-crafted essays that appropriately represent your strengths and achievements. The career goals will be particularly crucial; the short-term and long-term goals must seamlessly fit in with your existing story.

Further to the above, we recommend that you watch the following video; the same will help you approach your career goals essay:
