Admissions are granted on the basis of a number of factors including entrance test scores, group discussion, personal interview, etc. I applied with my CMAT exam scores and got shortlisted in the first list.

Admission :

You have to give any of the entrance tests like CAT/CMAT. The next step would be the application process, where you have to apply to the college with all of your academic details like graduation marks, class 12 marks, and entrance scores and paying the application fee. I was invited for further rounds of counseling. After clearing the GDPI round, I was asked to submit the fee. The reason why opted for this program was to support my business.
