You may submit your application form even if you do not know the results of the entrance test; nevertheless, you will need to provide your exam registration number precisely. It is possible that you will not have received your CAT/GMAT results by the time you submit the form; however, this is not anticipated. Applicants who have completed an application form will be able to access it again in order to amend their entrance test scores once the CAT results have been announced.
In order to apply, candidates must complete an application form and choose one of the four specialisations available: finance, information management, marketing, and operations and supply chain management. The candidate may choose up to two specialisations from among the four options available and rank them in order of preference.
Candidates must achieve the minimal exam score cut-offs established by the institution in order to be considered for admission to the SPJIMR programme.
