Admission :

Admission process is pretty lengthy here. First you have to give a management level entrance exam. I gave the CMAT exam and scored good. Then I applied at the college with all of my academic details and CMAT score. Shortlisted students are invited for next rounds, which mainly include GD/PI and even a psychometric test. Based on all these attributes students are evaluated and granted admission.

Admission :

College allocate weightage to different factors like entrance exam scores, academic profile, diversity factor, work experience, performance in GD/PI, and psychometric test scores. Entire selection procedure is very much exhaustive, but being one of the top-notch colleges in the region it was my ultimate choice for masters.
