The Masters In Business Administration (MBA) degree is one of the most popular and sought-after degrees even today, years after its surge in popularity.

Although institutes in India such as the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) are renowned for their management programmes, many aspirants continue to opt for international B-Schools such as Harvard, Cambridge, Stanford, Wharton, and Oxford.

According to an MBA coach writing for Forbes, Indians do in fact face more stringent competition while applying for MBA courses abroad, as compared to applicants from other countries.

"The reasons for the discrepancy come down to supply and demand. Schools can only accept so many applicants from a single region without compromising their diversity vision, and all highly-ranked schools are getting a lot of applications from India," MBA coach Lawrence Linker says.

Since Business schools are limited in the number of students they can accept from India, so as to maintain diversity amongst their student populace, the large numbers of applicants from India are in fact competing against other Indians, not international competitors.

As a result, Linker revealed, institutes judge more than just the GMAT scores of the applicants. Simply a high score is not sufficient to guarantee a seat with a top-rated B-School, as the institutes look for more differentiating aspects amongst the applicants.

Linker advised, based on data from MBA DataGuru, that applicants should apply to at least 5 business schools, to maximise chances of admission, and not to rely solely on technical numbers such as GMAT scores to enrich applications.
