Admission Process

Selection Process
Candidates who fulfil the eligibility criteria as stated above are required to submit any one of the CAT, GRE, GMAT scores along with their application form. Scores of any of these examinations including CAT taken during the last two years (i.e., on or after 1st July, 2016) will be considered valid. Admission to the programme is open to overseas candidates including NRIs and foreign nationals.

Candidates who have already have a one/two/three-year full-time classroom based PGP/EPGP/PGPWE from IIMs with minimum grade point equivalent to 6.0 out of 10 point scale or equivalent (with no ‘F’s and not more than two ‘D’s in the first year of PGP) are exempted from the test score, and can apply directly. It is necessary that candidates applying for exemption from test must attach copies of both side of the grade sheet to ascertain the equivalence between the grading systems of other IIMs, without which, the application for exemption from test will not be considered. 

Candidates will also have to submit a ‘Research Statement’ that would help in understanding their clarity of thought for future research. The candidates short-listed on the basis of their academic record, competitive examinations, recommendations and research statement will be called to IIM Raipur for a personal interview for final selection during April-May of the year of admission and the successful candidates will receive offers by mid-May of that year. 

A candidate receiving admission offer from IIM Raipur and accepting the offer within the stipulated date needs to send along with Offer Acceptance, a non-refundable commitment fee of 50,000 (the date of submission will be mentioned in admission offer letter) which will be adjusted against the amount of first instalment. 

If a candidate subsequently wishes to withdraw the offer within the withdrawal date specified in the Offer Letter, Offer Acceptance Amount will be refunded after deducting Rs. 1000/- as processing charges. In the event of withdrawal from the Programme after registration, and if seat consequently falling vacant gets filled by another candidate by the last date of admission, IIM Raipur will return the fees collected with proportionate deductions of fee and hostel rent, where applicable. 

Registration and Inauguration of the Programme will be held on June 04, 2018
