Admission Process

IIM Kozhikode adopts a three-staged selection process for its admissions:

The admission to the program is through a rigorous and internationally acclaimed admission test (CAT) with an average selection rate of less than one in a hundred candidates.

Stage 1, the following minimum eligibility criteria will be applied to all those candidates who have opted for IIM Kozhikode. Candidates obtaining a positive (greater than zero) raw score in all sections of CAT will only be considered.

  • Stage 2 process applies to all eligible candidates who have successfully completed the registration process in Stage 1 for the admissions to IIMK and it is for the determination of the candidates to be called for writing ability test (WAT) and personal interview (PI). A shortlist of candidates in each category will be prepared based on an Aggregate Index Score (AIS). The AIS is computed based on the performance in CAT 2019, Class X, Class XII, and a gender/academic diversity criterion. 
  • Final Stage The short-listed candidates will have to appear for a WAT followed by a PI. IIM Kozhikode will conduct the WAT and PI in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Kozhikode, Mumbai, and New Delhi. The entire process will last for a half-day (morning or afternoon). In this process, the candidates will be writing an essay, which will be followed by the PI. The essay topic will be announced at the venue just before the start of the WAT session. During the PI process, the panel will evaluate the academic efforts and disposition, general awareness and social disposition, attitude, personality and communication and the quality of work experience of each candidate. The resume score will be calculated based on the length of work experience, quality of academic and professional qualifications, and exceptional academic, co-curricular and extracurricular achievements of candidates. After the conclusion of the WAT and PI process, the final scores will be computed based on the performance in CAT 2019, PI, essay, and resume. The category-wise merit list will be prepared based on the final scores. Admission offers will be made to candidates following the merit list as per the Government of India reservation norms.

Eligibility Criteria

Domestic Candidates- 

The candidate must hold a Bachelor's Degree, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA [45% in the case of candidates belonging to the Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST) and Persons with Disability (PwD) categories], awarded by any University or educational institution as incorporated by an Act of Parliament or State legislature in India or declared to be deemed as an University under Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956, or possess an equivalent qualification recognized by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India.

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. However, it may be noted that such candidates, if selected, will be allowed to join the programme provisionally, only if they submit a certificate from the Principal/Registrar of their University/Institution (issued on or before the date as stipulated by the respective IIM) stating that they have completed all the requirements for obtaining the Bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification on the date of issue of the certificate.

Candidates applying for CAT  should fulfill any one of the following conditions:

  1. Completed Bachelor's degree with the required percentage of marks*.
  2. Completed professional degree (CA/CS/ICWA) with required percentage*.
  3. Should be in the final year of Bachelor's degree with required percentage*.

* SC/ST/PwD candidates should have minimum 45%. For General, EWS and NC-OBC candidates, the minimum is 50%.

The percentage of marks obtained by the candidate would be calculated based on the practice as followed by the respective University/Institution. In case of grades/CGPA, the conversion to percentage of marks would be based on the procedure as certified by the respective University/Institution. If any University/Institution confirms that there is no 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.

IIMs may verify eligibility at various stages of the selection process, the details of which are provided at the website iimcat.ac.in. Applicants should note that the mere fulfilment of the minimum eligibility criteria will not ensure consideration for short listing by IIMs. Candidates must declare and maintain a valid and unique email account and a phone number throughout the selection process.

International Candidates are Indian nationals or foreign nationals with valid passport or travel document residing outside India and not in a position to take the Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted by the Indian Institutes of Management at various centers in India. These candidates are required to take the Graduate Management Aptitude Test (GMAT).

  • Undergraduate degree or higher with a minimum of three years at a university, with a major and a minimum of 50% marks or equivalent GPA
  • A valid Graduate Management Aptitude Test (GMAT) score
  • A completed admission application form with three letters of reference

The most enthralling 2 years of your life

IIM Kozhikode is the best place to be in for a PGP course. Situated on hilltop amidst the beautiful Kerala, it's amazing. But its not just the place and the infrastructure, the place has an elegant and comforting environment, with very cosy hostels and classrooms in a beautiful campus. Industry exposure is slightly less, the trade-off for being inside the beauty, but it is at par with most colleges of the league. The professors are knowledgeable, and there is a lot to learn from them and it needs a mutual effort to do so. You get to study some unique subjects like Social Transformation of India, which is life changing. The crowd is talented and balanced with people of all kinds, backgrounds and regions. The fee is a bit high, but worth it all. One great place to be definitely, for the best 2 years of your life.

Imagine waking up in the middle of the clouds, going to the class filled with people of varied experience, demographics, and psycho-graphics, being taught by professors who not only have extensive teaching experience but also have ample industry experience to give you live examples during their lectures. When you come back to the rooms after the classes you have the group as well as individual assignments that test your knowledge and team work as well. The layout of the campus has been done in such a way that you may not need to join the gym to maintain your health, attending regular classes will help you in a way that gym won't be able to match up to.

Learning management lessons in a resort - Life at IIMK

IIM Kozhikode is known among the best management institutes in the country for its picturesque setting, nestled in the hills of Kunnamangalam in Kozhikode district of Kerala. That is one of the reasons it is called a 'resort' among the IIMs in the country. It has the distinction of setting up the first business museum in India. The beautiful scenery of Kerala can be enjoyed from almost everywhere in the Kampus (Kampus - for campus in IIMK lingo), be it the academic blocks, the verandas, the hostels, the mess and also from the library. There is an Industry Interaction Cell (IIC) which makes sure that the students get relevant corporate exposure by bringing in subject experts and practitioners of different management fields. There is a Cultural Committee which make sure that every religious ceremonies and celebrations are taken place. The Sports Committee takes care of the infrastructure and equipment of all the sports - indoor and outdoor. There are leagues like Master of Indoors, Clash of Titans, KFL (Kozhikode Football League), KCL (Kozhikode Cricket League) and KBL (Kozhikode Basketball League), so it is a given that the sports enthusiasts would be occupied all year long. There is a CalMar Committee (Calicut Marathon Committee) which runs the Calicut Half Marathon, the largest student run Half-Marathon in India. The professors are subject experts in their field with the best qualifications. But like every institute all professors' teaching ability might not be the same even if their knowledge about their subjects would be excellent. The most famous professor in IIMK is undoubtedly Prof. A F Matthew who takes Social Transformation of India for the first years and Globalization and Culture (an elective subject which is difficult to obtain when subjects are being bid for in the second year). He is a maverick professor who could antagonize and also please students at the same time with his views about the society. The college hostels have sufficient amenities for the students and there are single and double-sharing rooms for males and females. The placements are one of the best in the country both during the summer internships and the final placements and the number of offers and the stipend or salary has been rising every year. Mostly known as an institute which provides very good Sales and Marketing roles, a number of companies come forward in the Management Consulting, Finance, Operations, IT and HR. The students represents one of the best academic population in the country as they have cracked the CAT. IIM Kozhikode take proactive steps for increasing its gender diversity and also the academic diversity. This diversity provides a variety in ideas which is very important in classroom discussions across various subjects because learning has a heavy component of peer learning at IIMK. The overall fee at IIMK for the two years of the flagship PGP programme would come upto 19 lakhs excluding the Student Exchange program (which may cost an additional 2 - 5 lakhs). Loans are available to all the students and there are scholarships for students who are meritorious as well as students who are from a financial background. All in all my learning at IIMK has been fulfilling and I hope you can take a wise decision for your future education using my review. Thank you.
