The reason scholars opt for business courses is understandable. The central role a post graduate programme in management plays in creating value and better career opportunities and in ensuring higher wage premium attracts students to this discipline. According to a report published by Sofi, the return on Education in MS Computer Science cases is 10.2%, and the return on education in Engineering (Computer Science) + MBA cases is 48.9% in the United States. These high return figures clearly indicate the significance of getting an MBA. Read more benefits of MBA here https://www.gyandhan.com/blogs/one-year ... o-year-mba

What Are the Eligibility Requirements to Pursue an MBA From the United States?
In general, to apply for a full-time two-year MBA in the USA, the requirements are:
  • Bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. institution or its international equivalent. Most US colleges require 16 years of education before the MBA, which means four years of studies after school. Do note that some colleges accept a three-year degree too.
    A minimum work experience of 3 to 4 years.
    A GMAT or GRE score. The majority of schools take a GMAT score above 600, but if you are applying for the best graduate business schools in the US, then a score above 700 is essential.
    Proof of English Proficiency which requires a score of one of these three tests: IELTS, TOEFL, or PTE. The minimum score MBA colleges ask for is 6, 100 iBT, and 68 respectively. For US universities, the TOEFL score above 100 is preferable. If your undergrad was from a university with English as the primary medium of education, then many B Schools will waive off this requirement.
