What is a good GMAT score for ESMT Berlin MIM ?

Short Answer – The average GMAT score at  ESMT Berlin is 640 for the last entering class. If you score above 640, you have a fair shot and you will receive an encouraging response to your profile evaluation from the admission committee. 

Long Answer – There is no such thing as a safe score, higher is always better. In our years of consulting experience, we have seen our clients with 640 getting selected into top schools like INSEAD and on the other hand, someone with a 770 getting rejected too. A good benchmark that we advise all our clients to beat is the average GMAT score of the last entering class as mentioned in the Class profile published every year. Scoring above the average gets you a fair shot; 

“The higher your score, the better is it for your interview or admission chance.” 

If you plan to apply with a score below the average, then you are starting a fight with one hand tied behind your back or, say, starting a few yards behind your competitors. You can catch up in other application sections by writing outstanding essays or performing well in an interview later. But it is always nice to start ahead of the competitor. A higher GMAT score helps one gain a competitive advantage.

“What if you are from the overrepresented Indian or Asian Pool?”

The over-represented candidate pool of Indian or Chinese applicants usually goes through a rigorous preparation process for GMAT, with a lot of Indian applicants scoring quite high. Hence, the overall competition and the Average score for this diaspora goes up by a few notches. That is why we recommend candidates within the most over-represented profiles to shoot at least 20 points higher than the school’s class profile average.

FAQs about ESMT Berlin

The ESMT’s Master in Global Management (MGM) is a ‘pre-experience’ full-time program. Targeted at young, recent graduates in their early twenties with limited or with no work experience. Combining a series of internships and a social impact project with applied coursework and research on the latest business and management theories.

Most ESMT MGM students share a desire to launch an international career while applying analytical and strategic solutions to today’s business challenges. ESMT searches for students with international experience who can perform work in high-performing, diverse teams. Our program is by far the most international in Germany – no one nationality makes up more than 20% of the class


  • A Bachelor’s degree
  • Proof of English proficiency (e.g. TOEFL, IELTS) or graduating from a university program taught in English
  • Completed application, including essays and one recommendation
  • Having less than 18 months of post-graduate professional experience (not including internship or work experience prior to bachelor program graduation)

We do not have a specific minimum score for GMAT/GRE scores. However, the average scores for admitted candidates are: GMAT (640) or GRE (equivalent scores of approx. 160/160).

The Admissions Committee may decide to request GMAT or GRE scores for any candidate following a complete review of their application.

Your application must include one recommendation letter. You are free to choose either an academic or professional referees (from previous internships).

The ideal letter of recommendation is from a referee who can evaluate your performance either in an academic or professional setting and will take the time to write a thorough and supportive letter, detailing specific examples rather than general statements.

You can send the recommendation template to your referee from within the application platform. If you have a previously written recommendation letter, you can upload it to the application platform. Should you not be able to upload it as part of your MGM application, you can send it to the office of admissions via email

The essays are an opportunity to let the admissions team get to know you a bit better. Please answer the questions as truthfully and directly as you can in whatever style you see fit. We highly recommend using a spellchecker to avoid easy mistakes, but apart from that, there are no further guidelines.

Common mistakes that can be easily avoided: not using a spellchecker for your essays, using a different school’s name in your essays, and not answering the question.
