MBA Colleges in Australia that don’t require GMAT

Australia provides an excellent study abroad destination. Truly world class cities, a conducive environment and first-rate academic facilities. Adding to the many positives is another lure for international students…the requirement or rather no requirement of GMAT scores. Don’t go judging too fast. True, most of the top MBA colleges of the world require rather high GMAT scores. But to consider  GMAT  scores as a measure of the school’s program would be hasty and wrong. All the top schools across the world look at a variety of aspects of the application and the same is true for all  Australian Universities  as well. So why don’t they need a GMAT?

The answer lies in the way the Australian Education System works. More based on practical expertise, the Australian education system gives credence to work experience as well as your academic score. Most of the colleges require a minimum of 3 years of relevant work experience for you to be able to apply. Moreover, a quick glance at the student profile of these colleges would present to you that the average work experience of the students in their MBA program is around 4 years.

Furthermore, the Australian Education system believes that a student applying for a higher education after completing a bachelor course or a graduate diploma would necessarily have the required aptitude to complete the course. No GMAT does not in any way mean a lower qualification. In fact, the Australian Universities would require you to have a rather consistently high score across your high school and graduation. Most of the listed colleges have a minimum requirement of 65% in your undergraduate degree – aggregate and not only of the final year!

Another more important aspect to understand is that the universities do not require the GMAT mandatorily! As in, it is not compulsory for you to have a GMAT score to apply to these colleges. They assess the application and may request you to provide a GMAT score is your academic score does not match the minimum requirement. So, while we present a list of colleges that do not “require” a GMAT score, we still maintain that admissions to universities abroad is strictly on a case to case basis. Hence the standard suggestion remains the same – talk to the university’s admission officer about your application.

Colleges accepting GMAT

  • MBA Colleges Accepting GMAT 550 colleges
  • MS Colleges Accepting GMAT 269 colleges


Meanwhile, here’s a list of Australian Universities, some ranked amongst the top 30 MBA schools in Asia Pacific Region (Source: QS Global 200 MBA Rankings 2014/15: Asia Pacific), that do not require a GMAT score. If you have a good academic record, a decent work experience and an  IELTS  score of 6.5 – 7 and a low GMAT score of 550 or no GMAT score, these are the 10 universities you might wish to start your research with.

If you have been working in the country, you might not be asked to prove english proficiency. Apart from that, you would have to fulfill the basic academic criteria of a graduation to get admission in a PG course in Australia.

Hi Mitanshi,

While GMAT is mandatory in a few universities in Australia, many universities (list shared in article) do not require a GMAT score and an IELTS score of above 6.5 would suffice in most cases.

Devam Ahuja 12 Nov’15, 12:46 pm

In your another article eligibility requirements for some colleges include IELTS and TOEFL both!

So does it mean that to take admission we have to clear and get qualifying score in both or one test is enough?

Reply to Devam Ahuja

Kanika Khurana 16 Nov’15, 9:29 am

PG Aspirant

Hi Devam,

The eligibility is an either or. What we mean is that you need to clear either of the accepted english language proficiency tests. This could also be a PTE, depending on the university and country. We recommend that you check on the website which all tests as acceptable. If more than one is acceptable, you can write either of them.

Nishat Hussain 16 Nov’15, 4:44 pm

If you want to earn a graduate business degree, you probably are familiar with the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). The GMAT is a standardized test that many business schools require for you to be considered for admission. In addition to GMAT scores, applicants typically need to have recommendations, high GPA, essays and writing samples, and even a personal interview.

Many students spend weeks and months studying so they can get the highest GMAT score possible. The test consists of these sections:

  • Analytical writing assessment
  • Integrated reasoning
  • Quantitative section
  • Verbal section

Top notch business schools often want to see a GMAT score of 670 or higher. While the GMAT score may not be the most important factor involved in getting into these schools, it is important. Some business schools may have more emphasis on other factors, such as GPA, recommendations and writing samples. The higher your GMAT score at these business schools, the better.

Good News – GMAT Not Always Required

More prestigious business schools are no longer requiring the GMAT. Or, they may provide a GMAT score waiver for those who qualify. These are usually professionals with a high GPA or many years of work experience. Others may receive a waiver if they already have a graduate degree in certain fields related to business.

According to US News and World Report, of the 218 programs they rank, 99 require standardized test scores, but the list of no-GMAT-required schools is growing annually.

Why is this happening? Some educational experts maintain that the GMAT score, while it does provide a measurement of knowledge and your ability to use it, is of limited importance for determining likelihood of success in graduate school.

A GMAT score does have some value, but these hours-long tests do little to show how innovative or tenacious you are in school and in the business world. Nor do GMAT scores indicate your ability to apply what you learn to your career and field. And that is why more schools today are relying less on GMAT scores for MBA admission, or ignoring them entirely.

See our guide on how to  Choose a Top Online MBA Degree

For those who either do not want to take the test or have trouble doing well on standardized tests, it is recommended to consider business schools that do not require GMAT scores. If you are considering such an MBA program, it will be important for your application to be strong in these areas:

  • GPA – above 3.0 is highly desirable
  • Two or three professional and/or academic references who can speak to your business and academic ability
  • Strong business resume with years of related experience
  • Strong writing samples

Do MBA Admission Requirements Differ without a GMAT Score?

The entrance requirements for a no-GMAT MBA program online will vary, but a good example of requirements can be found at the College of William & Mary in Virginia. There are GMAT waiver options available, but you must have at least five years of professional experience with some managerial experience.

Also, the student needs to have shown preparedness for being successful in a quantitative-based curriculum. To demonstrate this, the student should have a graduate degree in a quantitative subject, such as accounting, mathematics, statistics, etc. Or, the student must have an undergraduate degree with the last four classes averaging 3.0 in math, economics, statistics, finance or accounting.

Other requirements for this MBA program are at least two years of work experience and a bachelor’s degree in business or a related field. Letters of recommendation, transcripts and an updated resume also are needed.

It also should be noted that few employers after you graduate are interested in whether you took the GMAT or what your score was. Above all, businesses want strong business management leaders to fill vacancies in their organizations. Whether you took the GMAT or not is of little relevance in this situation.

Executive EMBA vs MBA Programs

As you review your MBA program options, you will probably see some universities that offer a regular MBA and an executive MBA, also referred to as an EMBA. What is the difference?

An MBA is usually a two year program and can be taken online or in person at many universities. It can also take three or four years if taken part time. Most regular MBA programs are general management degrees that usually require less work experience than an EMBA. It depends upon the university, but it is common for many MBA programs to have students with five years or less of professional work experience.

MBA programs provide a more general business management background, with courses in accounting, finance, supply chain management, leadership and quantitative analysis.

An EMBA program is also usually a two year, full time program, but it is designed for experienced business managers and executives with more experience. Some EMBA programs require at least seven years, while others require 10 years or more of professional managerial experience. EMBA students are generally older and more experienced. Most EMBA programs are in person, not online, but can be full or part time.

Most EMBA programs are highly specialized; it is assumed that experienced business managers already have a background in basic business topics, such as finance, accounting and quantitative analysis. Students in an EMBA program usually are interested in developing specific, specialized business management skills for the particular industry in which they work.

Another major difference between these programs is who foots the bill. More MBA students tend to pay for their own education, or have to find scholarships, loans and grants. Most EMBA students’ employers pay for their education. After all, the company is directly benefiting from the knowledge the EMBA student is learning. Most companies will require the EMBA graduate to stay at the company for a few years after they graduate.

Accreditation – AACSB – Why It’s Important

When you are considering university’s MBA program, there are many factors to consider. One of the most critical is accreditation. It is important for the university that you are attending to have two types of accreditation: regional accreditation and program accreditation.

Regional accreditation means that the university itself has been accredited by one of the six regional accreditation agencies that are recognized by the US Department of Education. Regional accreditation means that the university has meet basic standards of educational quality. The regional accreditation agency that accredits the university depends upon the school’s geographic location. These accreditation bodies are:

  • Higher Learning Commission
  • Middle States Commission on Higher Education
  • New England Association of Schools and Colleges
  • Southern Association of Colleges and Schools
  • Northwest Accreditation Commission
  • Western Association of Schools and Colleges

The other type is program accreditation. It also is important for the MBA program to have been accredited by a respected business education accreditation agency. In the business and accounting industries, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, or AACSB. AACSB International has been accrediting business and accounting since 1916.

AACSB accreditation means that the MBA program has met the very highest standards of quality for business programs. With this accreditation, you can be confident your MBA curriculum is of the best quality, as the AACSB spends months evaluating the curriculum, teaching methods and staff of the business school. When you are ready to graduate and join the workforce, your degree will be recognized by employers as a high quality business degree.
