    Hello and thank you so much for your question.


    As far as writing management entrance tests is concerned, the foremost are CAT and XAT. About 2 lakh MBA aspirants write CAT, whereas, about 90,000 write XAT, with some overlap. With scores in these two exams, you can apply to more than 150 good B-Schools in India.

    Dear Mentors, I am Akshay. I have 4.1 yrs of experience in IT from a renowned MNC,

    Hello Akshay,

     

    Thank you for writing in. Although, you haven't completed your question, we understand that you are contemplating whether to pursue 2-year MBA/PGDM or 1-year Executive MBA. 

     

    In a typical MBA classroom, in top B-schools in India, the average work experience is around 2-3 years. You definitely are above that, and will inch closer to 5 years mark. With that much experience, you would also want to save one year of down-time from your working life - which means, you can go back to work quicker, you will save money and also, earn money.

     

    We have listed B-Schools that offer 1-year Executive MBA programs for experience professionals, and accept GMAT score for admission.

     

    However, admission to such programs is not done simply on the basis of GMAT score. They look at the complete profile of a candidate - and the process involves your past academic performance, GMAT score, quality of work experience, motivation to pursue and MBA, application package assessment, and interview performance etc.

     

    Please do let us know if you need any help in this regard. All the best.
