List of Best GMAT and MBA Books with Top GMAT Books Reviewed and Rated | GMATing

Four Year Under Graduate Degree Requirement in US B-Schools | GMATing

This is one question which comes up so many times that it's almost cruel to expect an answer. Mainly because the best way to answer this is to look up the school's website. But for all those distressed souls out there, who want it in one place, here it goes. In summary, only Haas, among the top B-Schools takes a NO stand on this. But again, check for yourself. I have taken the text verbatim from their site.

University of Chicago Booth School of Business

In light of the Bologna Accord, Chicago Booth will also accept all three-year international degrees to fulfill the undergraduate prerequisite for application to Chicago Booth.

Harvard Business School

An international applicant is required to hold a college or university degree equivalent to a four-year American baccalaureate degree.

The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania

There are a number of universities around the world that offer 3-year undergraduate programs. If you have received a Bachelor's degree upon completion of such a program, you are eligible to apply to the Wharton MBA program.
Admissions | FAQs

Kellogg School of Management: Northwestern University

Applicants who are part of an international educational system where three-year undergraduate programs are the norm (e.g., India, United Kingdom) are eligible to apply.
Admissions | FAQs

Stanford Graduate School of Business

Degrees from international universities offering only 3-year baccalaureate degrees are valid equivalents.

Duke's University Fuqua School of Business

Generally, we will accept international bachelor's degrees. Most of the degrees we see are at least four years. Three-year degrees are fairly common in all U.K.-based systems. Level exams frequently are equal to the first year of college; therefore, a three-year degree from England, Scotland, Wales and Australia are usually equivalent to a four-year program. In India, the bachelor's of commerce degree is three years, and is usually considered the equivalent of a U.S. business degree.
Admissions | FAQs

Stephen M. Ross School of Business: University of Michigan

Yes. Beginning August 2010, we will consider applicants who hold a three-year undergraduate degree from India.
Admissions | FAQs

Haas School of Business: University of California Berkeley

Applicants with a three-year Indian bachelors degree and no additional degree may apply, but are at a significant competitive disadvantage when compared to applicants with similar backgrounds and eligible education.

Unaccepted first degrees: A Postgraduate Diploma in business technology awarded by the Centre for International Management (16 mos) is an UNACCEPTABLE first degree. Associate of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Associate of Institute of Cost Works Accountants, Associate of Business Management, and Associate of Institute of Engineers are NOT acceptable as substitutes for a four-year degree.

Applicants with only a 3-year bachelor's degree do not meet the requirement for admission and are not as competitive compared to candidates with 4-year degrees. Therefore, to be competitive, applicants would need to complete a master's degree (2 years after your bachelor's degree) or other acceptable degree. If you are interested in applying to the Berkeley MBA program, we suggest that you complete an application. Eligibility with regard to the degrees equivalent to a US bachelor's degree cannot be determined in advance of filing an application. The Graduate Division reserves the right to review the official academic records of all applicants whose undergraduate degrees were earned outside the US to determine whether the academic credentials presented for a foreign institution are comparable to the US bachelor's degree.
Admissions | FAQs

The Admissions Office accepts applications from candidates with a three-year undergraduate degree. Those applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Admissions | FAQs

Admissions | FAQs

Tepper School of Business: Carnegie Mellon University

We will consider applicants who hold a 3-year undergraduate degree. In general, due to the highly competitive nature of our applicant pool, candidates with additional education beyond their 3-year degree are more competitive.

This is the first among the many interviews to come from successful B-School applicants.
