My Questions:

When do you think is the best time to apply for your program? (Up to now, I have 1,5 years of experience through internships and 1 year full time job experience.) Should I wait one or two years before applying?

Which factor is considerd most by your admission office? (test sores, working exp., number of diff. jobs, recommendation

Is a score of 640 in the GMAT sufficient? (Should I repeat the test, since my training scores were around 690?)

kind regards

Answer from Business Inforamtion Technology

We ask for a minumum of 3 years postgraduate work experience, therefore your application would not be successful at this time because you only have 1 year of post degree experience. I would therefore recommend that you wait a couple of years before applying for the programme.

We look for a balanced GMAT of 600 or over. The current average score at Cranfield is 660. Your score of 640 is fine for us. It really is up to you whether you think it would be in your best interests to re-take the test and obtain a higher score. The GMAT scores are valid for 5 years

Answer from Rachel Kilian - MBA Marketing and Recruitment Manager

Thanks for your message. We would recommend that you apply a further 2 years before applying. Our minimum work experience is 3 years, and this needs to be at a level with some responsibility. In order to make our selection decision, we look at a number of different factors, none of which are more important than the others - we look at your overall profile.

GMAT of 640 would be sufficient and there would be no need to retake.

Hope this helps. Please visit www.wbs.ac.uk for more information.
