Selection process

If you fulfil the requirements for the Programme you applied for, you will continue on to the selection process.

Selection is based on:

  1. GMAT test result

GMAT is not mandatory. However, choosing not to include a GMAT test score will lower your chances of admittance, since applicants with GMAT have priority. There is no minimum GMAT test score.

Tuition fee-paying students and non-paying students are admitted on the same grounds but in different selection groups.
