Nowadays, there are several forms of business schools, in most cases b-schools are faculties, colleges or departments in a university. However the number of institutions teaching only business is increasing.

Admission in a business school

To be admitted, you will have to prepare for an exam, an interview and to fill several forms with information about yourself. GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, IELTS and iBT are the exams one must take in order to apply for the great part of business schools around the world. After the exams, you will be required to fill different forms of documents (depending on the institution) with information about yourself and to write an essay and/or motivation letter. The last step is the personal interview, where a representative from the department, where you apply will also ask you about your past studies, experience and motivation for the future.
