ISB Hyderabad Now Accepts GRE Scores For Its Flagship PGP

The PGP is ISB’s full-time one-year residential Post Graduate Programme in Management. It is comparable in rigor and content to a regular two-year full-time MBA programme offered by global business schools.

To apply for the PGP at ISB, the candidate must have a bachelors or post-graduate degree in any discipline. Additionally, he/she must have a minimum of two years work experience. He must also have a valid GMAT/GRE score. Previously ISB used to accept GMAT  scores but now it is even accepting GRE scores this year onwards. For students out of India, a TOEFL/IELTS score is required.

Giving the GMAT/GRE is mandatory but there is no cut-off for the same. These scores are valid for 5 years from the time taken the test. In case you score higher in a consecutive exam, the higher score is selected at ISB, provided it is a valid score.

It takes up to three weeks for the official scores to reach ISB. The GMAT/GRE requirement will not be waived under any circumstances.
