GMAT score for scholarships


Hello, I am wondering about what GMAT score I need to target for my best chance of getting scholarships. I am a Chinese female who is working in customer service and I want to do my MBA in the USA or the UK.

I would like to go to a ranked MBA program but I don't have a huge budget. That's why I would need to get a scholarship. Any suggestions about what score I need and which schools I should apply to would be very helpful.

It depends - which ranked schools are you looking at?

Usually, you should try to outscore the average GMAT substantially if you want to get scholarships. If a MBA program has an average GMAT score of 640, if you score a 740 you'd be in a much better position to get a decent scholarship.

But nothing is given, an especially at the top schools, scholarships are rare.

It is indeed hard to get a scholarship at top schools unless you are cream of the crop academically and socially. The reality is that MBA from top schools are expensive and scholarships are rare. Top MBAs are normally for people who are both wealthy and smart, something like a VIP access pass to put it bluntly. I also won't suggest to take the risk to borrow to study or go to a lower ranked business school.

Good luck!

Then don't do it. What's the point of doing an MBA if it cannot achieve your goal? Mind you, even a lower ranked MBA can cost a fortune already.

Or take another year (or two years) to save. There are also organizations that provide loans to international students who pursue an MBA. Check out Prodigy Finance, for example.

...thanks. I'm looking at studying in the USA at Carnegie Mellon, BYU, Georgetown, or the University of Maryland. In the UK I am looking at Cranfield and Imperial. Do you think that since I am female I have a better chance than if I was male?
