MBA Programs in Singapore without GMAT Requirement

Generally speaking, if you're looking to get into an MBA program, you'll have to take your GMAT, and achieve a good test score. Most schools use this score as a selection criteria for their prospective students.

However, there are also quite a number of schools that don't require GMAT. Some of these schools have their own admissions tests, while other schools place more emphasis on work experience, or your past academic results.

The list of MBA programs that do not (or may not) have GMAT as a pre-requisite for entry, is as follows:

MBAs in Financial Times Top 100 Global Rankings (in 2011, 2012, or 2013)
