Big hike in applications from India for Foreign MBA

The results were found in GMAC survey


The survey conducted by Graduate Management Admission Council(GMAC) on application trends in 2021 found that the volume of applications for graduate business school programs increased 0.4% from the year before amidst the pandemic and business schools worldwide witnessed a hike in applications.

The survey also showed that there is a hike in applications from India. This is mainly due to the friendly visa policies, two -year work visa as well as eased travel restrictions. It was also seen an increase in the number of female applicants for MBA programs. Full -time MBA programs are more favored by students rather than one- year MBA programs.

“Candidates looked for alternative career options during the COVID-19 induced recession and B-schools introduced more flexible admission policies, resulting in soaring application volumes last year.”, said Sangeeth Chowfla, President and CEO of GAMC.
