The eligibility criteria and application process for admission to the best B-schools in the US varies from the scenario back home in India. So students from India planning to apply for MBA in USA better ensure that the meet the following conditions:
Most American universities and colleges only accept applications to their masters programs if you have at least 16 years of education i.e. 12 + 4. This may become a problem for Indian students who have pursued a 3 year B.Sc/ B.Com/ B.A. program resulting in only 12 + 3 = 15 years of education. In such a case, you must ensure that the US b-schools you’re applying to, accept a 3 year bachelors degree. Nowadays, more and more American business schools have started accepting 3 year undergraduate degrees. Be it a 4 year B.Tech/ B.E or a 3 year undergraduate program, ensure that your academic performance (GPA score) is impressive.
US B-schools accepting 3 year bachelors degrees:
Professional courses like Chartered Accountancy (CA) are also accepted by MBA programs in the US, as long as you have completed the entire course and cleared all exam levels AND completed your articleship as well. Please note that your articleship won’t be counted as “work experience.”
