Admission Process

Candidates will be shortlisted based on the CAT entrance exam and Personal Interview (PI) and a Written Ability Test (WAT).

Eligibility Criteria

A candidate must hold a Bachelor’s Degree, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA [45% in case of the candidates belonging to Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST) and Persons with Disability (PWD) categories], awarded by any of the Universities incorporated by an Act of the central or state legislature in India or other educational institutions established by an Act of Parliament or declared to be deemed as a University under Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956, or possess an equivalent qualification recognized by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India. The percentage of marks obtained by the candidate in the bachelor’s degree would be calculated based on the practice followed by the university/institution from where the candidate has obtained the degree. In case a candidate is awarded grades/CGPA instead of marks, the conversion of grades/CGPA to percentage of marks would be based on the procedure certified by the university/ institution from where bachelor’s degree has been obtained. In case the university/ institution does not have any scheme for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by dividing the candidate’s CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the result with 100.

Candidates appearing for the final year of bachelor’s degree/equivalent qualification examination and those who have completed degree requirements and are awaiting results can also apply. If selected, such candidates will be allowed to join the programme provisionally, only if he/she submits a certificate latest by June 30, from the Principal/Registrar of his/her University/College/Institute (issued on or before June 30) stating that the candidate has completed all the requirements for obtaining the bachelor’s degree/equivalent qualification on the date of the issue of the certificate.

You don't survive at Joka, but you live here. One usually comes here keeping only placement in mind but towards the end, of course, learns a lot about life. With largest alumni base among all IIMs and being known as finance campus of India, this is the best place if you want to enjoy the life while learning management. Life is not all about slogging here, it involves many more things which you may not get in other premier IIMs which are more focused towards endless slogging. Enter here and you will never regret.

IIM-C is the best institute of India. Despite there's no college life but the veteran faculties and education curriculum make it the best college of INDIA. The 2 years spent here were full of learning and fun. The teachings, extracurricular activities, sports facilities, and events gave an exposure that prepared and nurtured me for my further life . Indeed the lessons and relations I earned from this second home can never be forgotten.

The campus of IIM C, located outside the city has seven lakes inside of it, boasting some unique facilities like Financial Laboratory, Fully air conditioned and well-equipped classes, an open-air theater & Fully AC auditorium. The campus offers a great deal of learning through interaction with different sets of people and a great practical way of teaching. though I believe the college hostels can be made better, the campus authorities are doing the right work to build new hostels and make the campus life more comfortable and conducive.

Excellent infrastructure with lush green surroundings. The lakes and greenery surround the magnificent library, classrooms, admin block, hostels and EDP blocks. Extremely capable and scholarly faculty in all domains especially finance, statistics, operations, marketing and behavioural sciences. We enjoyed and made lifelong friendships. The fun and joy of spending those two years together, while also working hard, prepared us for the life ahead and continue today. We stepped into our professional lives with our first jobs in hand on the campus and with dreams in our eyes and grand visions in our minds .

The best management college in the country without a doubt. IIM Calcutta believes in the philosophy of treating adults like adults and gives them freedom from running the campus to develop equally in academics as well as infy other opportunities available. Every time there is something or other exciting going on in the campus that you never really experience the grueling environment of a B school. At least a wholesome experience for me and my friends. Life is fun here. Really fun.
