How much gmat score is needed to get into ISB Hyderabad?? Is even with gmat score work Experience is mandatory??

Sampriti Student Expert 4th Jul, 2019

ISB Hyderabad provides an executive MBA which is for one year and every executive MBA requires a work experience for at least 2 years. 

For the program in ISB also you need at least 24 months of work experience and a GMAT score of 700. Though sometimes they reduce the cutoff but it's suggested to keep your scores above 700 to be on the safer side. 

All the very best 


how to crack ISB(Indian School of Business) Interview cracked?

saranya 27th May, 2019

Read the school’s website thoroughly, especially all the details related to your post-MBA goals.As correctly stated below, speak to ISB alumni especially those who had similar pre-MBA profiles and post-MBA goals. It really really helps.Practise the standard MBA questions as Why MBA? Why ISB? What after MBA? etc.Be thorough with your essays and your job profile because ISB loves to talk about your work.

Good luck!


What is the selection criteria for ISB Hyderabad Campus ?? and I also want to know Is Work Experience mandatory for the admission into ISB ?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 24th Mar, 2019

Dear Rupa, you need to have atleast 24 months of fullbtime experience by March 31st. So it is mandatory to have work experience. Every candidate is evaluated in Academic Credentials, Leadership Potential and Personal Attributes. They consider your 12th Grades, Graduation grades, Post graduation and certificate scores along with GMAT/GRE scores. However there is no cut off as such. Your letter of recommendationnshould speak for your Leadership skills and achievements.
