Admission Procedure

What are the key selection criteria for ICASR’s MBA?

The MBA caters to professionals and we try to evaluate candidates in a holistic manner and not just rely on aptitude test or academic scores that many schools emphasize on especially for fresh graduates. The aptitude test scores are important at the interview shortlisting stage but have limited weightage as far as the final selection is concerned. We seek to evaluate the quality of work experience, professional and personal achievements, demonstrated leadership and team skills, aptitude and attitude. We also seek candidates who can add value to the class in terms of peer learning and diversity.

In terms of the process, we have eliminated the Group Discussion component since we felt that it was adding incrementally limited value to the whole selection process. Instead our panelists devote the extra time for a deeper assessment during the personal interview. As part of the Interview process, we also have the analytical writing test which does help in evaluating both the written communication skills and the thought process of the candidates.

Can I apply online?

Yes. You can apply online by making a payment through any Credit/Debit card. Alternatively, You can also buy it from ICASR City office and the Campus.

Students from other streams can also apply for the course. The candidate should hold a Bachelor's degree or equivalent from a recognized university (Minimum of 15 years of study).

Does the entire application need to be completed within one session?

No. You can complete the online application in multiple sessions .The changes will have to be saved every time the application is updated.

Do I also need to submit a printed copy of the application form once I have submitted it online?

No it is not required.

Which cycle should I apply in? Is there any difference in applying in Session 1 or Session 2?

ICASR MBA application is a two-step process consisting of Registration and Submission. While you can start your application anytime you need to submit it before the relevant applicable deadline (30th June. 2018 for Session 1 and 31st August. 2018 for Session 2) to be considered in the specific Session.

Sessions are distinguished based on the scores with which one is applying. One needs to submit the application in Session 1 if s/he has last year’s scores i.e. CAT 2016, XAT 2017, CMAT 2017 and GMAT taken after 1 Jan. 2015. Applicants who have CAT 2017, XAT 2018 and GMAT (taken after 1 Dec. 2017) scores need to submit the application in Cycle 2.

In terms of the selection process there is no preference given to applicants in any Session and there is similar probability of getting selected. However, applicants submitting in Session 1 get some extra time to plan their finances, personal commitments and exit from companies better as they get an admit offer by end of December.
