Dear Gaurav,

Greetings from Hotcourses India.

The general requirement for MBA from the US is that they need 16 years of education, work experience of around 2 years, GMAT and IELTS/TOEFL.

There are a few universities who do accept 15 years of education but always advisable to write to the university confirming if they will accept three years of undergraduate.

Master degree or Post Graduate diploma are only considered if completed, full time and recognized by UGC/AICTE. 

Please send your CV at for the detailed discussion.

Thanks & Regards,

Dear Gaurav,

This is in reference to your query about 16 years of education, If you have completed full time degree like 1 year M. com after your 3 years graduation course from any recognised university then, you qualify for 16 years education criteria.

I hope this answeres to your query, please register on our website or call on 1800 103 2581.
