What was your GMAT score? 730+ (11%) 730 - 700 (21%) 700 - 680 (12%) 680 - 650 (7%) Below 650 (5%) Took EMAT (17%) I Tage Mage (6%) I Others (22%) Often argued as the most important part of the application process, one usually wants a GMAT score above 700 to cement his chances of acceptance. Though, the median scores 710, a lower GMAT is definitely not a deal breaker. One can observe from the survey that a substantial population of the students had scores below 680. A strong profile with a good academic track record can go a long way to mitigate a low GMAT colleges usually hover 690- score. Also some colleges accept alternative exams, which you can write to get admission, these include EMAT, TAGE Mage( for french schools), IELTS, GRE and a few others. What was your under grad CGPA?? (on 10) 19.0 & above (23%) I9.0 - 8.0 (36%) 8.0 - 7.0 (27%) Below 7 (13%) Though a strong CGPA is always a plus point in your application, one can observe that students with a varied range of academic scores have successfully gained admission. One reason for this is that colleges know that some specific schools have a tough grading process and hence will judge your grades accordingly. Alternatively, the person may be involved in lots of activities and by giving a proper justification via the essays, would be able to mitigate the effect of a low CGPA. Which region do you belong to? IWestern Europe (42%)I S.E Asia (4%) Middle east & N. Africa (9%) INorth America (2%) South America (2%) Eastern Europe (1%) Africa (2%) I China (22%) Indian Sub-continent (14%) I Other (2%) This question was included to give an idea about the diversity in a MiM program. Students from over 26 countries study together to lend a very dynamic environment to the campus. An upside of belonging to a country which is not well represented in the MiM student body is that you have a stronger chance to get accepted. This is because schools try their best to maximize the diversity of the incoming batch for various reasons (one of them is the global rankings) The downside is that some schools also have unofficial limits on the number of students they accept from specific regions. This is especially true for countries such as India and China where a high volumes of applications come from. Which age group do you come under? 35 30 25 20 15 10 24+ 124 - 23 23 - 22 I 22 - 21 Below 21 Though the MiM is marketed as a degree for young graduates, the international student body usually consists of students from various age groups, going up to 27 years in some cases. So never think you are too old to apply for a MiM. Which stream did you take in your UG? AA AAZ AAA AAAA AAAA MAA AAAA MAAAAAA MAAAAAAA IEngineering/ Sciences (26%) Business & related fields (54%) Arts & related fields (12%) I Others (8%) Business schools love different backgrounds, you will find die hard engineers, savvy business majors and creative humanities students studying together and working on various group projects. There are also a number of students who have done their UG in language studies, so the subject of your UG degree is not a constrain at all. One thing interesting here is that if you have a very different background( say a degree in Archaeology or Psychology) or some unique skill ( e.g- a handwriting analysis expert), it can really work in your favor, if framed well in the application essays. Do you have any work experience? 35 30 25 20 15 10 I More than 2 yearsI1-2 years ILess than a year Just some internshipsI No work ex yet Often marketed as a degree for young graduates, the MiM is also a very popular choice for people who have up to 3 years of work experience. Schools favor work experience because such individuals tend to have a better understanding of the corporate culture, are more placement ready and tend to bring learning's from their respective fields . Also the work ex. helps provide some very interesting material to showcase in the application essays. Most of the international students entering the MiM course tend to have 1 year of work experience, on an average. If you have a small amount of work experience or want to gain some experience working in the international field, the MiM has a very interesting gap year or gap semester concept, where one can take a break from studies and do a couple of 6 month internships. This can boost your market value when you try to find a job after graduation. Why did you choose this degree? | International Exposure (37%) I Improve future prospects (33%) Change Study/Job field (21%) As an alternative to the MBA (9%) Different people have different reasons for joining the MiM. Some want to explore the world, for some it is a way to improve their job prospects, some want to change their field of work while for some it is just a quick alternative to an MBA degree. These tend to be the top 4 reasons why students select the Masters in Management What would you say, was the biggest factor that got you admission into this school? Extra-curriculars (16%) I Strong academics (15%) I Global mindset (23%) GMAT Score (12%) Excellent past results (11%) I Work Experience (15%) Well travelled (9%) Only 12% people feel that the GMAT played a detrimental role in obtaining their college admission. They felt a much higher weightage was given to -Having an open and global mindset -Strong Extracurricular activities -Work experience This again reinforces the fact that a low GMAT score or weak academics can be compensated by effectively showcasing the above points in your application essays. Which field will you be targeting, after course completion? AA AAZ AAAA AAAA MAA AAAA MAA AA MAZ AAAAAAAAAAAAA Consulting (24%) Finance (35%) I Marketing/Sales (21%) Business Developement (16%) I Operations (2%) Tech Industries (2%) The MiM provides excellent opportunities to get into top companies in almost all major sectors ranging from Consulting, Finance, Marketing to Operations & Energy. As can be seen from the survey, a majority of the aspirants want to get into the consulting, finance or marketing field. Each of these sectors recruit heavily from top MiM schools and fetch handsome salaries for the graduates. Do you feel the need to do an MBA, after the MiM? Yes (30%) I No (44%) Maybe an executive MBA (26%) This question provides a suitable answer to the old debate of MiM vs MBA. You can notice that only a small percentage of students feel the need to do an MBA after the successful completion of the MiM, and most prefer to go for an Executive MBA later in life, if they feel the need. This is mainly because there are a lot of similarities in the curriculum of a MiM and a MBA, and both degrees do a splendid job of preparing the students for a career in Management. Hence, MİM students do not feel the need to supplement their education with a MBA degree, as most of their needs have already been met. (MÝM ESSAY Created by Visit us at
