Hi everyone, I would like to know which business School are within reach based on my profile ?

french/Mauritian student , 21 years old male

Language : Fluent in french and English, Spanish (limited proficiency)

Software : Office, python (beginner)

Areas of interest : Financial modelling, portfolio management

Gmat : Not yet taken ( took a long time to decide if I should attempt it or not due to a heavy workload + mandatory ACCA papers I have to take with my new job)

Targets : Open to suggestions ? Ideally some top european business schools but not tier 1 as I don't believe my profile is competitive enough hence : Rotterdam, Esade, Ie, Warwick, Dauphine (France), HEC Lausanne , Copenhaguen , KCL, Cass, or some AustralianB-Schools (ANU/Melbourne)

Thanks in advance for your time,

Would greatly appreciate if you could recommend universities I should apply to based on my profile and best Schools without Gmat requirement !

Regards

Without the GMAT I believe ESADE is your best bet. Alternatively you could do the entrance exam for IE which shouldn't take as long as the GMAT!

Thank you for your answer ! However ESADE do require that I take the Gmat before they can process with the application. What would be the best Msc Finance without a Gmat? Hec Lausanne ?

Warwick probably out of the ones you've listed...
