It has come out to be a major institute in terms of education and research promoting managerial excellence in the country.  Given below is the admission criterion for PGP 2013 programme.

    IMB adopts a two-phase selection process. The first phase is applicable to all eligible candidates who appear for CAT 2012, to determine qualifying candidates who will be called for personal interview (PI).

    Phase 1

    1. The first short listing of candidates is based on candidates securing minimum section-wise and aggregates percentile scores in the CAT. The percentile cut-off scores used for CAT2012 are shown in Table 1.

    SEC 1 (QDI)

    SEC 2 (VLR)






















    * These cut-offs are not for those who have been called for interview whose scores would be much higher

    1. For all candidates shortlist in first as stated in Table (1), the candidates’ percentage scores in the 10th and 12th board exams are initially derived by dividing each such score by  the 90th percentile score obtained in that board.
    2. For all candidates in the first shortlist as stated in Table (1), the weighted total of the five components namely (a) work experience or professional course, (b) CAT, (c) 10th board, (d) 12th board, (e) bachelors as stated above is used to prepare a pre-PI rank list for calling candidates for the PI.
    3. For all candidates in the first shortlist as stated in Table (1), normalization or standardization in any component stated above is carried out as per the following formula.

    Max [0, min {wt, wt/2 + ((val-mean)/ sd) * wt/6}]

    Phase 2

    1. All candidates will be required to provide three reference letters from their employers or faculty and this will also be used in the personal interview evaluation. For each of the three elements of evaluation during the PI process – Note Content, Note Style and Personal Interview - the average of the scores given by the interviewers will be considered.
    2. The quality of work experience score will be evaluated on a 5 point scale (0 – 0.5 – 1 – 1.5 – 2) by each member of the panel during the interviews. The average quality of work experience score will be multiplied by the pre-PI work experience score and accordingly the work/professional experience component score (maximum score 5) used in Phase 1 will be revised in Phase 2 (maximum score 10). 
    3. The note content score (weight=7.5), note style score (weight=7.5), and the personal interview score (weight=20), after standardization across interview panels and sessions, will be added to the pre-PI total to arrive at the final aggregate score.
