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)?

Thank you for your posting.

As an international student, you will need to score above a 680 (and above 75th percentile on each section) to be competitive at most top programs (regardless of location). For top 5 programs, you will need above a 700 to be considered competitive. Also, for international students, your TOEFL score is important and most competitive candidates score above 110.

Just also be sure to invest the time, energy and resources into making sure your application is top quality. While all aspects of your background can be competitive, a mediocre application can really damage your chances greatly. Applications are difficult and meant to be so - so make sure they are of the quality expected of competitive candidates.

Lastly, we have seen an uptick in interest from Brazilian candidates this year - so I am expecting the number of candidates applying to top programs will increase somewhat. This will make the landscape a bit more competitive at all top programs. This speaks all the more to performing well on your GMAT and submitting an application that really makes you stand out.
