Sanjay Khandelwal 8th Jan, 2020
For different university and college there are different eligibility criteria, you must have 6-6.5 IELTS score for that, work experience is not compulsory but they will consider during application, they may have interview also. You can do MBA but you must see the criteria in University you wish to desire. In B-School that will not be a problem i think. If you can mention any college then i can help further.
