For the Full-Time MBA at Imperial, achieving a GMAT of at least 600 is a requirement for starting the programme. If you have a test score ready with your application then it will add weight to your application – particularly if you’ve achieved a strong overall score and well-balanced results across the different elements. You can apply without having taken the test, but it would be a condition of an offer if you are made one further down the line.
We receive applications from a wide range of candidates with different academic and professional backgrounds, and we use GMAT results to help us consistently select students who are ready for the rigour of our intensive one-year MBA. In addition, having prepared for the GMAT test, you will feel more ready to get back into the classroom after several years away from education.
