I don't think you need to improve. There are other sections of the application which carry way more importance than TOEFL. Still, you can check the MBA class profile of the school you are applying to.
In most of the cases, TOEFL is just a qualifying criteria. Furthermore, most of the schools in the US will waive the requirement for TOEFL if your medium of instruction in undergrad was English.

Hope this helps.

Absolutely unnecessary to take TOEFL again to improve your score. Unless you are applying to apply super elite colleges where the requirement is set pretty high (Eg. Harvard has 109 & above requirement), no need to take it again. Whereas some good B-schools like Yale has no TOEFL requirement at all. They judge the level of your English via various steps in the application like GMAT, essays, skype interviews etc. Do take a look at the requirements of the schools you are applying to. Like mentioned above, some even waive it. 108 is a pretty good score which fits requirement of almost all schools. Also bear in mind that TOEFL plays a small part in the entire application process. Scoring 118/120 will not result in guaranteed scholarship or acceptance. I'd rather save the $ to take an extra shot at taming the GMAT, which is a beast of an animal! Good luck with the apps!
