ADMISSION PROCEDUREAdmission to the MBA program is through a three-stage selection process, consisting of:
- A Written Test - Don Bosco University-Post Graduate Entrance Test (DBU-PGET) **.
- Group Discussion
- Personal Interview
A candidate desirous of seeking admission for the MBA programme needs to apply for the written test (DBU-
PGET) along with his/her application for the programme **.
** Candidates with valid GMAT/ CAT/XAT/MAT /AICTE-CMAT/JMAT may be exempted from the written test, on production and successful verification of the test scores. Such a candidate would be required to participate in the latter two stages of the admission process – Group Discussion and Personal Interview.
The MBA Admissions Office will evaluate all applications on the following criteria and shortlisted candidates will be called for the second and third stages of the application process.
- Leadership Potential: Applicants who have demonstrated an ability to take up initiatives in their work or academic life consistently have an edge in the selection process.
- Diversity: The University welcomes diversity in all its manifestations - work experience, educational background, demographic, linguistic backgrounds, ethnicity, religion, etc. Applicants are encouraged to explain their backgrounds and provide details on how they can contribute to the diversity expected in the classroom experience.
- Academic Background: The MBA programme is rigorous and intense. Therefore, the student’s academic performance plays a key role in the selection process. The institute also accesses analytical ability based on DBU-PGET/GMAT/CAT/XAT/MAT/ AICTE-CMAT/JMAT. However, we do not have a cut-off score for the above tests. While a good score in any of these tests helps, nevertheless, an average score can be compensated for by achievements in other areas.
- Work Experience: Candidates with full-time work experience (more than 1 year) will be preferred. However, this is not a mandatory or compulsory requirement. The diverse professional experience of students contributes to the rich and stimulating learning experience. Successful candidates must demonstrate managerial and leadership potential, drive and focus.
