MBA & PGDM are both Post Graduate programmes in Management.  In India, only universities, be it central/state/or private, are authorized to conduct MBA programmes. The autonomous institutions approved by AICTE offer PGDM. From the point of employability, there is no differentiation. PGDM programmes are normally found much more flexible and hence close to the industry/recruiter’s need. It may be noted that even IIMs offer PGDM programme only.

Some additional weightage is also given to the eligible candidates on the basis of their work experience & social profile to bring diversity and inclusiveness in the selection process. The proposed break-up of different weightages for 2017 admission cycle is as follows :

It is a reality that post declaration of the CAT/XAT result, all the top ranked B Schools start inviting candidates for further selection process.

To avoid possible overlapping of selection process with other Business Schools, as in last year, we propose to have an early round of selection process in the month of December 2016 itself on six locations. The candidates would be invited for the early round process based on their profile as judged from their :

• Consistency and good past academic performance.
• Relevant work experience (if any) that brings value to the class room learning.

This early stage selection process provides a candidate an opportunity to appear for the process with relative ease.
