It is a common knowledge that to pursue an MBA abroad, one must need a GMAT or GRE score. But do you know a few universities accept CAT score for admission to their MBA or equivalent programs? Read on to find out!
In our previous article titled, "International B-schools accepting CAT score", we presented b-schools that accept CAT score for admission to their MBA, MiM or other equivalent programs. Things have changed a little over the past year and the list has been updated.
It is important to understand that most of the 2 year, post graduate management programs in India are considered as Masters in Management (MiM) programs internationally. The reason behind this is because to be considered for most of the Indian 'MBA/PGDM' programs, a candidate does not require a full-time work experience. Internationally, an MBA program have a minimum of 2 years of work experience criteria.
