    Guys, is there any way doing an MBA without the GMAT?

      Hi there,

      thank you for your question. Well, there are fulltime MBA programs that do not require the GMAT. I guess you are interested in **fulltime MBAs**, right?

      The **GMAT**, however, often - not always - is a signal that a school is very restrictive in selecting its students. And being restrictive often means that the students have a great quality - and that means that the school is a high reputation among employers...

      Some schools by the way require the GMAT and offer an **alternative test** at the same time. This test is designed by themselves and offered on campus. I have never done such a test - but from what I hear this test seems to be easier than the GMAT.

      You can use our **[Search Filter "Entry requirements"](** to search for programs that do not require the GMAT.

      I do, however, recommend you to take the GMAT. It is tough but a good exercise and with a score of 600 points at minimum you provide the minimum score to be accepted for good programs.

      Best wishes
