In my opinion, GMAT somehow seems necessary for a business program abroad. Especially for a country like the USA, where an MBA proves much more than a degree. However, there are some major institutes that do not require you to submit a GMAT score for MBA. Of course, they are less in number. These institutes are generally preferred by working graduates who do not want to put extra effort into going through a standardized test. And by far, the quality of education in any of the mentioned business schools are exceptional. In fact, even Kellogg offers an Executive MBA with no requirement of a GMAT score. Here are the 10 best business institutes that don't require a GMAT score for an MBA:

MBA - Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics
MBA  - Kent State University
MBA - University of Illinois
MBA - University of Maryland, Baltimore
MBA in Financial Management - Lubin School of Business
One-year MBA - Hult International Business School
Full-time MBA - University of Washington (Foster)
Professional MBA - College of Business FIU
Executive MBA - Kellogg School of Management
Executive MBA - Marshall School of Business
Now, these institutes might not require a GMAT score but there are other requirements that you must fulfill like a bachelor GPA, IELTS/TOEFL Score etc.

I can guide you through finding universities that might not require the GMAT or English proficiency tests for a business-related postgraduate program.

Typically, universities in non-English speaking European countries may have more flexible requirements regarding these tests. Schools like Lund University in Sweden and the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands offer various programs where these tests are not mandatory. They assess candidates based on their academic achievements and relevant experiences.

In English-speaking countries like Canada and Australia, certain universities may waive these requirements for candidates who exhibit strong academic records or substantial professional experience. For instance, Brock University in Canada and Macquarie University in Australia often provide such waivers.

It's crucial to directly contact the admissions departments of these universities to confirm current requirements and to discuss your specific circumstances. They often provide clear guidelines and exceptions which could greatly benefit your application process. Furthermore, preparing a strong motivation letter and obtaining references can also support your application in the absence of GMAT or English test scores.

Both pathways—whether looking at universities in Europe or the more flexible programs in Canada and Australia—offer robust educational opportunities without the stringent testing requirements of other institutions.
