The average GMAT at AGSM is 650. At Melbourne it's closer to 690. That's going to be the ballpark for most of the best programs there.

Of course, that's dependent on what the other components of your application look like: your undergraduate performance (GPA), work experience, etc.

I ask because my GMAT is 590 :( so I guess I need to study.

My undergraduate performance is also not ideal because my GPA was low. However I do have 8 years of work experience and some management experience too so I hope this could help.

Are there some MBAs in Australia that would accept me with a lower GMAT score? Thank you, Irene.

Since your GPA was low, schools will want to see evidence that you are now ready to pursue an intense academic degree. This is typically through an applicant's GMAT score: if you can put in the time to study and get a good GMAT score, it can go a long way towards counter balancing poor undergraduate performance.

While you may be able to get your foot in the door at an unranked MBA program with your current score, you may want to considering doing some targeted prep and trying to get it up, by at least 50 points (ideally higher if you're targeting top schools in Australia).
