Eligibility

  • The candidate can also hold a degree in Engineering or Technology for four years duration after twelfth grade, BSc or Diploma course completion.
  • Candidates who are appearing for the final year examination can also apply, and so can those who are awaiting their results. Provisional certificates will need to be submitted.
  • The selection process is of two stages, and various factors are considered, so fulfillment of the minimum eligibility criteria alone will not ensure consideration for shortlisting into the IIM.
