What is a good GMAT score for MiM at INSEAD?

Short Answer – The average GMAT score at INSEAD is 680 for the last entering class. If you score above 680, 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 that is below the average, then you are starting a fight with one hand tied behind your back or, let’s say, you are starting a few yards behind your competitors. You can definitely catch up in other sections of the application by writing outstanding essays or performing really 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 over represented 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.

The INSEAD MIM is accredited to grant a Master’s degree under European Standards and, by extension, registered on RNCP (Répertoire national des certifications professionnelles). 

More specifically, the INSEAD MIM received both the Visa and Grade of Master, and has been accredited by the French Ministry of Education through the CEFDG (Commission d’Evaluation des Formations et Diplômes de Gestion) to be entitled to grant a Master’s degree (Bac + 5), equivalent to a total of 120 ECTS. This means that the 14-16 months of the INSEAD MIM programme, including the pre-programme and professional exposure module, account for what is typically referred to as M1 and M2 in the French System.


Applicants need to submit their application online. Only complete applications will be considered by the Admissions Committee. You will need to submit the following:

  • Online application form containing your personal data, a CV, academic background, two recommendations letter (from a business or academic environment/perspective), scanned copies of your academic transcripts with officially certified translation (if applicable), a motivation essay, and your test results for GMAT or GRE, and English (if applicable).
  • Once you have submitted the application form, you will be redirected to the “Kira Talent” platform for a video interview, where you will answer additional questions.

All elements of your application will be thoroughly reviewed by the admissions team. If successful through the first pre-selection, candidates will be invited to attend an interview with an INSEAD alumni or admissions representative in a city near you, or via Skype. Once the interview is completed and the interview report has been returned, the application will be reviewed further and finally submitted to the Admissions Committee.

In all other cases, you should bring evidence of your knowledge through an English test result. We accept TOEFL (recommended score equal or above 103), IELTS (recommended score equal or above 7.5), Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic (recommended score equal or above 70).
