Yes, it is possible to apply without a GMAT or GRE score and send it at a later date but no GMAT waivers are granted in any circumstance. If you apply without a GMAT in this way, you can aim for a conditional offer and then secure a 1st Nationality scholarship if you are one of the first three of your nationality to enrol in the programme officially by paying a first instalment. If your GMAT score permits, you will be granted a scholarship upgrade according to our scholarship policy. If your GMAT score is considered too low to allow entry to the MBA, your first instalment will be refunded in full. Even If you have paid your first instalment, you can still retake GMAT as many times as you want with the aim of securing a higher scholarship. You have until 1st September for the September intake, or 3rd January for the January intake, to submit your final score for approval
No, you will need to provide a firm letter of enrolment from EDHEC. To get this, you must have a firm offer and be officially enrolled in the programme (i.e, to have paid the first instalment) to apply for a student visa. All candidates must therefore have had their GMAT score approved by the selection committee well ahead of any deadlines imposed by their local visa section of consular services.
These can be done by telephone, Skype or on-campus. You decide which works best for you. Your interview will usually last between 35 to 45 minutes and allow time for Q&A. You will be tested on communication skills and general “fit” for the EDHEC Global MBA. Your will have the chance to develop your essays orally at this time
Once you complete your application, your file will be processed and successful candidates will be called to interview. Following the interview, successful files will be forwarded to the next selection committee for appraisal. These take place regularly so admissions are on a rolling basis. Successful candidates are informed of the decision of the selection committee by email just after the meeting. The sooner you apply, the sooner you get an answer. The whole process usually takes around three weeks from start to finish but you can request a fast track admissions profess if you are pressed for time for whatever reason
