The decade following independence in 1947 was witness to a surge of innovative ideas to build a fledgling independent nation into a model democratic state committed to growth with equity. The establishment of the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) was the outcome of one such innovative initiative.

Led by space scientist Dr. Vikram Sarabhai and an eminent industrialist and philanthropist Shri Kasturbhai Lalbhai, and proactively supported by the then Chief Minister of Gujarat, Dr. Jivraj Mehta, a group of enlightened individuals set up IIMA in 1961. This group ably wove together a coalition of five actors - the governments at the centre and the state, local industrialists, the Ford Foundation and the Harvard Business School, to establish the foundations of the Institute.

IIMA was set up as an institution that would be managed by a Society, the IIMA Society, created under the Societies Act. The Institute was to be run by a Board of Governors, constituted by the IIMA Society; the Board would have representation from all the relevant constituencies so as to reflect the multifarious needs of a developing nation. IIMA was therefore conceived as a Board-managed institution, free from the exclusive control of any one constituency. Thus, operational freedom is an integral part of the DNA of IIMA.

IIMA has been consistently ranked as the premier management school in the country by several national agencies. IIMA programmes are also ranked highly in several international rankings. In 2008, IIMA became the first management school in the country to be awarded EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) accreditation by the EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development).

Application Rating Score: AR= (A+B+C)

Normalised AR score of an applicant is equal to their AR score divided by average of the top 50 AR scores from the applicants’ pool, (the applicants’ pool in this case being defined as the group of candidates who appear for CAT-2017 and apply to IIMA.)

Shortlisting for Academic Writing Test (AWT) & Personal Interview (PI)

Shortlisting will be carried out in two stages.

Stage 1: (From the Applicants' pool: Selection of exceptional performers across different disciplines will be shortlisted for AWT & PI on the basis of their composite score ‘CS’ (see below) subject to their fulfilling certain criteria. From each of the academic categories (AC) for which the total number of applicants to IIMA who appear for CAT-2017 from SC/ST/NC-OBC/PWD categories is at least 100, the top 5% in the respective AC limited to the respective categories (General/SC/ST/NC-OBC/PWD) among the applicants to IIMA who appear for CAT-2017, henceforth referred to as ACRC groups, (subject to upper limits on the numbers per ACRC group as specified in the table below) will be shortlisted for AWT & PI on the basis of the composite score ‘CS’ (see below) subject to their fulfilling criteria C1-C3.

CS (Composite Score) = 0.3 (Normalised AR score) + 0.7 (Normalised overall score in CAT-2017)

C2. P ≥ Minimum cut-offs (specific to the category and the stream as shown in the table below ), where P is the average of the percentages of marks scored in 10th and 12th std. examinations.

C3. (Percentage of marks in the bachelor’s examination) ≥ Minimum cut-off percentage, to be set at the 80th percentile of the percentage of marks of the respective ACRC group of the applicants’ pool, (the applicants’ pool in this case being defined as the group of candidates who appear for CAT-2017 apply to IIM Ahmedabad and belong to the respective ACRC.)

Any AC, for which the total number of applicants to IIMA who appear for CAT-2017

from SC/ST/NCOBC/PWD categories is less than 100, will not be subdivided into ACRCs as above. For such an AC, the top 100 or the top 5% in the respective AC among all the applicants to IIMA who appear for CAT-2017, whichever is less, will be shortlisted for AWT & PI on the basis of the composite score 'CS' subject to their fulfilling criteria C4-C6.

Criteria C4-C6:

C4. PT ≥ 80, PQA ≥ 70, PDILR ≥ 70 and PVRC ≥ 70.

C5. P ≥ 80 (Science), 77 (Commerce), 75 (Arts/Humanities), where P is the average of the percentages of marks scored in the 10th and 12th std. examinations.

C6. (Percentage of marks in the bachelor’s examination) ≥ Minimum cut-off percentage, to be set at the 80th percentile of the percentage of marks of the respective AC group of the applicants' pool, (the applicants’ pool in this case being defined as the group of candidates who appear for CAT-2017, apply to IIM Ahmedabad and belong to the respective AC.)

Stage 2: After removing the candidates selected in Stage 1 from each category (General, NC-OBC, SC, ST and PWD) the additional number of candidates to be shortlisted for AWT & PI will be selected on the basis of the composite score ‘CS’ (see above) subject to their fulfilling criteria C1-C2.

Final Selection

Selection at this stage will strictly be based on the ranks of the candidates computed separately for each category (General/SC/ST/NC-OBC/PWD) on the basis of their ‘Final Composite Scores’ (FCS).

FCS = 0.50 (Normalised PI Score) + 0.10 (Normalised AWT Score) + 0.40 (CS).

The normalised PI and AWT scores of a candidate are their scores in the respective field divided by the average of the top 1% scores in the same field respectively.
