IIMA provides a variety of academic programs, as well as entrance and eligibility procedures. The IIMA admissions process is determined by the course chosen by the candidate. The CAT score is required to apply for admission to PGP, PGP-FaBM, ePGP, and ePGD-ABA programs. Admission to PGPX is solely based on the GMAT/GRE. In addition, they accept applications from other admission tests like as the GRE, GMAT, GATE, UGC-JRF, and ICAR-SRF. The category (GEN & EWS, NC & OBC, SC, ST, PWD & PWD) is the second significant consideration for admission (ST). Total seats are further subdivided into categories, with IIM accepting admission on a category basis. Another important factor is a good academic record and percentage score.
