Choose Your School and Program
No matter where you live around the world, you’re certain to find a school and program that’s a good match.
Schools offer a variety of program options - full-time and part-time, on campus and online – and they look for candidates who come from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds.
When choosing a school, think about the career, lifestyle, cost of attending, and curriculum. You can use the GMASS® School Search Service to help you narrow your options.
Admissions officers want to know you as a person and take into account your total experience.
In putting together your application, you’ll typically need to provide:
- Undergraduate transcripts
- GMAT scores
- Work experience (usually required for an MBA)
- References and letters of recommendation
- Extracurricular activities
Here’s how schools consider applicants:
- Your academic record, recommendations, and work experience are judged for your potential to succeed in a program relative to the overall applicant pool.
- GMAT scores predict how well you will do academically in their core curriculum.
- Work experience, extracurricular activity, and letters of recommendation help schools gauge your professional promise.
- Interviews and essays to determine why you want to earn a degree and how you will use it in the future. They will also help schools learn about your communication skills.
As you’re completing your application, also consider:
- What does your competition look like? Evaluate the school’s past applicant statistics against your own strengths and weaknesses.
- What would you add to the program?
- How can you enrich the school’s learning environment?
- Are your career goals attainable?
- How competitive are you?
