MBA Admission 2020: Check Application Deadline of Top B-Schools

AICTE has announced deadline for MBA admissions for 2020 academic year as July 31. Check admission dates, application deadline, process and selection criteria of top MBA colleges in India here.

MBA admission requires long-term planning. First of all, one needs to decide which career to opt for. Thereafter comes the choice of managment course, and then choice of MBA college. This decision requires extensive research about each MBA college and courses that it offers. Other important factors that one needs to keep in mind are government recognition, eligibility criteria, admission process, tuition fee, hostel facility, pedagogy, infrastructure, placements, etc. Shortlisting of institutes for an MBA/PGDM programme must be based on these aspects. Once, the list is ready, next step is to find out their MBA admission process and selection criteria. Many MBA colleges accept candidates on the basis of common entrance exam score while some select candidates on the basis of Graduation score. MBA admission is majorly based on entrance exam, group discussion (GD) and personal interview (PI).

Through GD/PI, the institutes assess each candidate’s qualities which cannot be measured on the basis of their academic score or performance in the entrance exam (CAT, XAT, CMAT, MAT, SNAP). They judge the candidate’s personality traits like business aptitude, managerial skills, leadership qualities, communication ability, confidence, attitude, etc. which form the core of a successful business manager.

Once the CAT result is declared, the 20 IIMs screen the test takers on the basis of their CAT score and academic record.

Factors determining selection of candidates for IIM WAT/GD-PI are listed below:

  • CAT score
  • Class 10 score

  • Graduation score

After the WAT/GD-PI is completed, a Composite Score of each candidate is arrived at by calculating marks obtained by them on various parameters.
