      Hi there,

      thank you for your message.

      **"What are the deadlines for admission?"
      "Does i have to give only gmat exam or i have to also give toefl?**"

      You can easily find out the answer to these questions by yourself. Just screen the websites of your favorite schools and read carefully the admission requirements.

      **"hen should i take gmat exam."**
      The general answer is: as soon as possible. Some Master in Management do not require the GMAT, however, or offer alternative tests. Also, some programs allow to send the GMAT result later in the admissions process.Again: Read carefully the entry requirement pages of the schools.

      **"Please tell schools in usa,Canada,Australia"**
      Why don't you have a look at my other platform [Master in Management Compass](http://www.mim-compass.com) and use our Country Filters to find schools in the US and in Canada or Australia?

      **"i want to do mim in international business or marketing or IT.please tell which is best."**
      I cannot tell you which is "the best" because it depends on YOUR criteria. Imagine, you want to work in the financial service industry later on - then you should choose a program where many financial service firms recruit on campus. Hence you need to clarify in advance what you want and then screen the programs according to your criteria so that you eventually find out YOUR BEST program. I recommend you reading [my earlier comment here](http://www.mim-compass.com/forum) as this one tackles the same question and explains my logic.

      **"please also tell estimated scholarship that i could get."**
      Whether scholarships are offered or not - and the size of these scholarships - and the chances that you become eligible for it... all that depends on the specific program. I recommend you screening the FINANCIAL AID parts of the schools' websites and the eligibility criteria mentioned there. In general, schools or their business partners grant scholarships from some hundred Dollars to 100% tution fee coverage. Also, scholarships may be divided into merit-based (e.g. high GMAT score or great essays) and need-based scholarships. Some scholarships are specifically designed for specific groups - e.g. entrepreneurs, people from a specific region etc. Again... start reading the websites of the schools...

      **"do i need to pay more fees even if i get scholarship."**
      Please confer my previous answer.

      **"7.please tell about the schools intake deadlines and from where i could came to know about these deadlines.
      some schools are showing deadline for september intake what does this means and when session will be started."**
      Again.. all of this can be found on the schools' websites. You find (1) the application deadlines (wether it is a fixed deadline or whether it is a rolling admission process) and you find (2) when the classes start.

      My general impression is that you are at a very early stage of the process of finding a Master. I strongly recommend you investing some weeks of screening websites of schools and carefully reading everything related to your program of interest. Most of your questions will clarify then.

      Best wishes
      Thomas
