    • Applicants must have an undergraduate degree in any discipline or should be in their Final Year when applying.
    • IMB is designed for freshers and young executives with up to 5 years of work experience.
    • The eligibility criteria for academics is a minimum of 55% across 10th, 12th and under graduation and a minimum aggregate average of 70% of 10+12+undergrad.
    • All applicants are required to appear for at least one of the below mentioned tests before submission of their application, in a particular round.
    • Bocconi Test
    • CAT scores – 2022/2023
    • GMAT scores taken after January 1, 2021
    • NMAT by GMAC score of 2022/2023
    • GRE scores taken after January 1, 2021
    • The candidate can be asked to take the Bocconi Test if they don’t have any other test score, or if the provided score is not up to the expectation of the admissions committee. There is no additional fee to take the Bocconi Test.

In case of multiple test scores, we consider the best of the scores.

The process is based on an overall profile analysis of the below mentioned factors:

  • Academic Abilities
    A consistent academic background and a demonstrated ability to work under pressure have an advantage in the selection.
  • Test Scores
    Applicants must also score well in admission tests (CAT, GMAT, GRE, NMAT by GMAC, or the Bocconi Test). SDA Bocconi Asia Center does not indicate any “cut off” restriction. A high test score is definitely helpful, but – for instance – an average score could be compensated by the candidate’s excellence in other areas.
