Eligibility Criteria for MBA Programs

Strong Academic Credentials Standardized Test Scores Strong Extra Curriculars
4 year Bachelor’s degree from any U.S. accredited institution or an international equivalent* Competitive GMAT score (Preferably above 600)
However, there are some B-schools which do not ask for the GMAT
Minimum work experience of two years
Strong Extra Curriculars & Community Service experience


*US is considered as one of the most flexible destinations in terms of its education requirements.  Though a 4-year bachelor’s degree (i.e. a total of 16 years of education) is the norm for MBA programs, some business schools are open to applicants having a 3-year Bachelor’s degree. The requirement for 16 years of education/15 years of education can change sometimes and therefore it is recommended that you first check with a b-school about their requirements (in case you have a 3 years bachelor’s degree) before applying.

Intake & Application Deadlines

There are two application intakes – Fall & Spring; however, the Fall intake is the most preferred intake by B-school applicants.

In terms of deadlines for B-schools, there are usually multiple application rounds (in some B-schools, there are three application rounds). The timelines for most of the B-schools are as follows:


1 October/November
2 January/February
3 March/April


In case you are an international applicant, it is usually advisable you apply in Round 1 itself. However, it is also important to ensure that your application is complete and you have made considerable efforts to project a strong profile. In case your application is not ready by Round 1, you should submit maximum by Round 2.
