Some universities require you to take the GRE® whereas some require you to take the GMAT. We recommend that you check the specific requirements of the universities you are interested in applying to.

As well as your own personal interests, you should think about practicalities such as the costs of studying in that country (both tuition costs and living costs), your graduate career prospects (is there a good job market?) and your overall safety and welfare.
