The Master in Management (MIM) refers to a special type of postgraduate program that provides general management knowledge for graduates or recent graduates with only little work experience. Masters in Management usually grant a Master of Science or a Master of Arts. Media such as the Financial Times use the term “Master in Management”, explains Thomas Graff, the founder of Master in Management Compass before which he worked for McKinsey & Company and as Head of Marketing, Business Development Manager.
MIM, or a Masters in Management is different from an MBA and serves a different, purpose but does accept GRE scores. In fact, the requirements to enroll consist of a bachelor degree, proof of the candidates language skills, sometimes (not always) the GMAT or comparable tests, such as the GRE.
So, to answer the pertinent question, yes taking GRE can be as appropriate as taking GMAT for the MIM program. In fact, it will be highly advisable.
A few international schools accepting GRE scores are Aix-Marseille Graduate School of Management – IAE, Alpen-Adria Universität Klagenfurt, Antwerp Management School
Audencia Nantes School of Management, Bocconi University, Brunel University, Catolica Lisbon School of Business and EconomicsHautes Etudes Commerciales, ESSEC Business School, London Business School, WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management, Audencia Nantes, Warwick Business School, Sauder School of Business, EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht, EDHEC Business School (Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales du Nord) and The Escola Superior d’Administració i Direcció d’Empreses.
So, while you need to concentrate on all other aspects, remember that GRE doesn’t just count but it acts as a measure of your competence. It very easily accounts for about 20–25% into whether or not a B-School will take you in.
GRE isn’t just a test score. It is a marker of the skills that the people at the admissions are going to be looking at. It measures accurately your skill set and the preparation and qualification put together sends the message that you are a serious enough candidate.
