The answer to this question may not be as clear-cut as you’d expect. The Bocconi Test is not a requirement for applicants who have a Valid CAT, NMAT By GMAC, GMAT or GRE scores to report.

However, even if you are planning on sitting for one of these exams (or if you have already), it benefits you to be proactive and take the Bocconi Test. Why? Because our admissions process considers the best of all of your scores.

If your other test scores are way below the average scores accepted by us then its mandatory for the candidate to attempt the test to further qualify for the IMB Program.
