    Hi
    I am in CA final now and having my attempt due in Nov. 2014. And as soon as I complete CA I want to go for MBA. So I want to ask whether top universities would consider my training of 3 years as working experience and if not then am I not eligible for MBA as I won't have any work experience??

    Regards
    Shuchi

    hmmm…. since you have completed your 12. you now have to go in for a sat exam.. the GMAT as far as i know is for post graduation level. At the graduation level you have to give your SAT exam

    Hai,

    Is it possible to move on to the MBA after having an Microbiology degree?
    If yes, may we apply with a GRE score to the top MBA schools in USA and what are the respectable GRE scores to get into a decent business school?

    Thanks.

    Hello Rohan,

    In reference to your query, you need a score of at least 700 and above in GMAT for admissions in top 20 Business Schools in US.

    But GMAT scores alone do not guarantee admissions in top Business Schools. Your overall work experience also makes a lot of difference.

    In fact with a GMAT score of 650, if you have a an excellent work experience, your admission chances would be good.

    In case you would like to get your profile assessed for admission chances, you can forward me your recently updated resume at ankita.arora@learnhub.com

    As we have a very experiences team of senior counselors working with us, we can surely assist you with guidance required throughout the admission process and Visa process later.

    Hope the above information gives you a meaningful insight into admission process abroad.

    Good Luck!
