It is testing and application season and you are likely worried about your GMAT score if you haven’t taken it, and might be planning a second test if you aren’t satisfied with your earlier results. Here are ten marketing PhD programs with a 600 minimum GMAT requirement. Should you apply?
In research about PhD programs in marketing, we found many that require scores at least 600. Many schools identify that requirement clearly, and tell prospective applicants nothing more. You can see a sample of those below with nothing noted except the 600 minimum. Other schools are more helpful to prospective applicants. Notice the significant disparity between the minimum requirement and the average scores reported by some programs.
|Southern Illinois University Carbondale||600 min|
|University of Arizona: Eller||600 min, 650-760 range, min 85th % on the subsections|
|University of Florida||600 min, 700 admitted|
|University of Kansas||600 min|
|University of Kentucky||600 min|
|University of Manitoba: Asper||600 min|
|University of Missouri at Columbia: Trulaske||600 min, 650 avg|
|University of Oregon: Lundquist||600 min, 728 avg|
|University of South Florida||600 min|
|Wayne State University||600 min, 646 avg|
If your scores barely meet the minimum requirements, think carefully about where to apply and strongly consider retaking the exam. There is a world of difference in your opportunities if your score moves from a 600 to even just a 650. If you can move up to a 690, your options increase significantly and you will potentially see multiple admission offers by the end of the cycle.
