Eligibility Criteria:

  • At least three-year bachelor’s degree in any field with a minimum of 50% of the possible points [45% if the candidate is a member of the Scheduled Tribe (ST), Scheduled Caste (SC), or Persons with Disability (PWD) category].
  • Applicants who want to take a qualifying exam may also apply, provided that they submit documentation of their necessary qualifications by October 7, 2023.
  • Age restrictions do not apply.

Selection Process:

Academic consistency, academic diversity, gender diversity, and work experience are combined with the results of the IIFT Written Examination, Written Ability Test (WAT), Group Discussion (GD)/Extempore, and Personal Interview (PI) to determine admission to the IIFT MBA (IB)-Full Time 2023–2025.

There will be two steps to the process, which are as follows:

Stage 1: Short-listing

Sectional cut offs and IIFT entrance exam percentiles will be used to determine which candidates are shortlisted for WAT-GD/Extempore-PI. The number of candidates to be shortlisted in accordance with the number of seats available determines the minimal cut-off percentile. Under IIFT’s gender diversity policy, the cut-off marks for female candidates in all categories are two below the real cut-off. Marks from classes X and XII will be taken into consideration in addition to the previously mentioned condition. Non-engineers may receive up to 5 points at IIFT in order to maintain class balance.
The IIFT shortlisting criteria for Stage I candidates are compiled in Table 1.

  1. Writing Ability Test (WAT): An essay on a predetermined topic must be submitted by the shortlisted candidates. The primary criteria for evaluation will be comprehension skills, clarity, and the manner in which concepts are presented and expressed.
  2. Group Discussion (GD): The shortlisted applicants are required to hold group discussions on a predetermined topic.
    The ability of the candidate to exhibit leadership, teamwork, communication, substance, and the capacity to offer fresh perspectives on the subject will be the main criteria used for GD evaluation.
  3. Personal Interview: Those who made the short list are required to show up for a personal interview. The candidate’s academic, extracurricular, and analytical performance are the main factors considered in the evaluation.
