Admission Requirements

  • 2. I did not take GMAT/GRE test, can I apply for the Programmes?

    GMAT/GRE is a mandatory requirement for application. You can apply online first and then take the test later. Given the suspension of the tests in some of the countries/regions, we may make conditional offers to suitable applicants. However, you are still required to take the test to fulfil the admissions requirement.
