Popular Types of Online MBA Programs

One of the most difficult parts of the MBA application process can be taking standardized tests. Some applicants just do not "test well", or do not have the time to prepare and sit for a GMAT exam. Conveniently, there are several business schools offering GMAT waiver online MBA programs, where the GMAT exam requirement is waived for qualified applicants.

One of the common impediments to enrolling in an MBA program is the test score requirement. The GMAT is widely considered one of the most difficult standardized entrance exams, and many students, especially those who don’t excel at the test-taking process, may rather avoid taking it altogether.

Among aspiring entrepreneurs and leaders, obtaining a master’s of business administration (MBA) is seen as a crucial stepping stone towards a successful career in the business world. Reputable MBA programs provide students with valuable knowledge and hands-on training to help them thrive in the job market upon graduation.

  • What Are MBA Yield Comparisons, Connotations, and Stakeholders? (MBA Admissions Yield, Part One)

    Although most MBA applicants aren’t familiar with yield, it embodies a significant concept frequently on the minds of university admissions committee members, otherwise known as “adcoms.” And as we’ll see, a broad range of stakeholders—from university boards of trustees to the bond market on Wall Street—pay close attention to yield statistics.

  • What is Demonstrated Interest and Why is it Important for MBA Admissions?

    To protect or improve their yield ratios, universities want to grant entry to applicants who <i>will enroll</i>, not those who are likely to decline and accept a competing school’s offer.
