low gpa with a moderate gmat score. looking for masters programs. any help is appreciated.


i graduated with a bachelors of arts in economics with a low gpa, from an indian uni. i have taken the gmat and scored 680 on the test. i am interested in pursuing a masters in finance from unis in europe/ asia or australia but dont know what unis to shortlist with my scores. could anyone suggest any good programs, that dont require prior work experience.
i have gone through the ft rankings etc but not many asian or australian schools are listed. what about the schools like trinity college dublin, st andrews, uni of melbourne that arent featured on the ft rankings but still appear on other rankings like qs and thes?

Glasgow and HEC Lausanne are currently ranked in the FT's Master in Finance ranking, so those would most likely be strong choices. I'm not sure what kind of GMAT scores these schools would be looking for, though. Those schools and Mannheim are also in the FT's Master in Management ranking...

Interesting that you're considering schools in so many different regions... Why not try to narrow it down by where you want to study?

Hi guys,
I am an indian student with a low gmat of 560. I have got 42 on quant. I have a gpa of 5 out of 7 in electronics engineering as per Australian standards. I wish to pursue masters of business analytics. I have 2 years work ex as a business analyst. Can anyone suggest where in Australia would be best for me to gain admission with my profile? Roi is a high priority for me.

There aren't many options along these lines in Australia. Melbourne has a program that you might look into. They don't require the GMAT score for admission, but they might ask for it, depending on how they see your profile.

These programs tend to be highly quantitative, though, so the fact that you're just above the mean on the quant section might be a red flag.

If you are checking mannheim, you can also have a look at Frankfurt school of finance and management which is also well known for Finance. Trinity and UCD Smurfit are two good schools in Ireland with Smurfit having little extra edge. Melbourne is ranked higher in Australia. Your GMAT looks good enough for most of these schools.
