Average gmat score for non-US mba programs

Flags of non-US countries for MBA programs

Below is a list of the average GMAT scores of MBA students in non-US programs along with some other useful information.  Another point of information sometimes listed alongside a class' average GMAT score is the middle 80% range.  In general, falling somewhere in the middle 80% range GMAT score is what you need to get into a school. If you have a score lower than the middle 80% range for a certain school the probability of you being accepted is small.  On the other hand, if you have a score that is higher than the 80% range then your GMAT score is definitely not going to keep you out of the school (although other parts of your application still can).  

The below information comes from several different sources including the official MBA program websites, Business Insider (France), and Forbes, with the numbers being sourced from the classes of 2019. In general, the average GMAT score has increased by 5-10 points for most programs over the last year.

INSEAD- "While we do not have a minimum GMAT score required for admission, we advise candidates to aim for a score at or above the 70th-75th percentile for both the quantitative and verbal sections of the test. Please keep in mind, however, that the GMAT is just one of several admission criteria. A high score does not guarantee admission, and a below average score does not eliminate a candidate. (a 36 in the Verbal section is 77 percentile and a 46 in the math is 75 percentile.  That means your total score should be above a 660).  The statistics were as follows for last year's class
