Are there possibly any top MBA programs that currently do not require GMAT? 2 YoE, 4.0 undergrad GPA from top state uni. Any that possibly offer a waiver? I understand that I don’t have a lot of YoE but just trying to see what my options are.

You’d either need more YOE or look into their online MBA equivalent

Berkeley Haas waived GMAT requirements for applicants for fall 2020 if you're an alum of UC Berkeley. Might be worth finding out if they're extending this for non alums.

They sent out an email saying we have up till the end of June 2020 to apply for fall admissions. So yeah it's a bit late but still worth pursuing possibly!

International?

Yes!

Clarification (n00b here) - what’s YoE?

Thank you!!

Kellogg

Is there any link you have in hand? I don’t see anything as such on their website for future applications.

Yes many schools but the waiver normally has very high requirements. A google search may be quicker and more effective.

I'm 6 YOE, MBA in the field of IT Implementation/PM with a T2 firm. I'm looking to leave due being overlooked by the firm for upward movement. I'm at 135k, with the possibility for bonuses (~20k) the next review at year end, but am being put in for a TS. A boutique firm is offering 165k, but no chance at clearance and lower (5k max) bonus structure. Would you leave? What would you do?
