Which European MBA with your GMAT?


Duncan
The QS rankings (http://www.topmba.com/mba-rankings/region/europe/2014) give their opinion of the average GMAT score at the top 60 business schools in Europe. After considering strategy (GMAT Tiers - strong schools for your GMAT www.find-mba.com/board/27082) you might find this table useful for working out where might be a stretch school, a competitive school, or a safer school, for your GMAT.

I don't think all these average are accurate. The scores for ESIC, Henley and Nottingham look wrong to me. But it's a starting point.

Do any of the other numbers look wrong to you? Let me know if you have more accurate averages and I can update the list.

Yes, but GMAT requirements are different from the average GMAT scores at each school, which can give applicants a better estimation of their competitiveness. I don't think that Offenburg actually publishes their cohorts' average GMAT scores.

Hey, which of these European MBAs would you suggest for an American who wants to go abroad for a year? I'm interested in France but it sounds like my GMAT isn't good enough for HEC (I scored 640...) But what about Grenoble or IAE Aix? Thanks!

You can do better than Aix or Grenoble.

How does your work experience compare to the averages at these schools? Look at ESSEC if it's better, and EDHEC or EMLyon either way. The new Solvay Ponts MBA gives you the amazing ENPC brand and a very flexible course design.

I have 6.5 years of work experience right now. I hadn't heard of the Solvay Ponts MBA, so I will certainly check that out. Thanks much!

ESSEC might be a good option, especially if you wait until next year to apply.

BUT, their final application deadline for this year is in May, you can always contact them and try to feel out how they're coming along on filling this year's cohort -- depending on where they're at, they may be looking for people with specific types of experience.
