Are You GMAT Ready?
Thinking of applying to the programme? A strong GMAT score helps us assess your ability to succeed in the programme.
Like many other adaptive tests, the GMAT requires rigorous preparation in the weeks leading up to the exam date. With the right approach and proper planning, however, acing the GMAT is well within reach.
Practice the test on our online simulator to assess your level.
Dates & Deadlines
While we operate a staged admissions process with five deadlines per year, within each round, applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Please note that while competition within each of the rounds is equal, the earlier you gain admission, the more time you have to secure financing and arrange logistics. The online application form for the next intake opens when the last round of the previous intake has passed.
