Question Description
What are the basic admission requirements in universities and business schools of Australia to study MBA for international students? Is Australian MBA recognized worldwide? Is Australian Universities and Business Schools better place to study MBA for my bright future career?
Answer

The admission requirement (also known as entry requirement) to study MBA in Australian Universities and Business Schools vary from one institution to another. However, the most common requirements to be admitted in Australian Business Schools/Universities are as follows:

- Applicant must have bachelorís degree in business related subjects (other disciplines can also be considered upon request to respective universities).
- Applicant must have professional work experience in management and leadership position of at least 2 years.
- In case, if English is not the international applicantís native language, proof of English proficiency is also required. (Most of the Australian MBA Universities accepts both IELTS and TOEFL scores. But the overall band score on IELTS must not be less than 6.5 and on computer based TOEFL, the score must not be less than 230 with an essay rating of 5.0 for most of the universities.)
- GMAT Scores are also highly recommended but not mandatory for all universities.

If you want to apply for enrolment, then along with these requirements some of the following documents may also be required:

- Two referee reports providing information on previous works, achievements, experiences, managerial potentials, etc.
- Statement of Purpose with reasons to study MBA in that university, future goals, etc.

It is obvious that all applicants may not meet all the entry requirements of the university. Even though most of the Australian Universities are strict on entry requirements, many of them are quite flexible in accepting applicants not meeting their admission criteria through alternative modes of acceptance.

Those Universities and Business Schools allowing alternatives modes of entry into the full Master of Business Administration program offers applicants graduate certificate or graduate degree programs to give students opportunity to show their competency, maturity and academic capacity to manage the full MBA program. Entry requirement under this mode is quite flexible and easy way to student not meeting the general entry requirement of the University.
