Graduates of full-time degree course and candidates in the final year of the undergraduate degree are eligible to apply. Candidates from ODL (Open and Distance Learning) institutions are also eligible to apply as per the UGC policy and notification.
Applicants born on or after January 1, 1993 and on or before December 31, 2000 are eligible to apply.
Applicants are required to take any of the following standardized entrance exams – CAT 2019 / XAT 2020 / CMAT 2020 / GMAT / GRE.
There is a different cut off score for each entrance exam which is given in the section “Application Screening”. From among the entrance exam score given by the applicant, the best score will be considered subject to meeting the eligibility cut off.
While entrance exam scores are an important component of the admission process, they are not the sole criteria for admission. Shortlisting for Personal Interview (PI) will be based on parameters such as academic performance in Class X, Class XII, UG and performance in the competitive exams, in short called as “Qualifying parameters”.
Admission to the programme will be based on combined scores of qualifying parameters and interview parameters which include work experience and extra-curricular activities.
Work experience is not mandatory. Candidates with work experience of less than or equal to 36 months, as on the date of deadline for application, can apply
