The Indian Institutes of Management have been the archetype of management schooling in India since their foundation after our independence in 1947. Established in 2015, IIM Bodh Gaya is setup under the mentorship of IIM Calcutta, the oldest IIM in the country. Right from the start IIM Bodh Gaya has meticulously followed its mentor's footstep. Building on the grand heritage of the IIM brand, IIM Bodh Gaya aspires to promote a culture which can create socially responsible managers and emotionally mature leaders.

In a short span of a year, IIM Bodh Gaya has already strengthened its position in the league of premiere B-schools. IIM Bodh Gaya follows the same pedagogy as of IIM Calcutta. In effect students in IIM Bodh Gaya follow the PGP curriculum of IIM Calcutta and are taught by the faculty members of IIMC. They partake the academic rigor for which IIMC is known for offering Post Graduate Programme (PGP) in Management, and providing the standard specializations such as Finance, Marketing and HR. The overall quality as well as design of the curriculum at IIM Bodh Gaya is also overseen by IIM Calcutta.

The curriculum involves intensive case studies, engrossing field work, role plays and continuous corporate interaction workshops. The program has been conceived to provide world-class management education to meet the requirements of enterprises across sectors by producing highly skilled management professionals. Till its 118 acre permanent campus comes up, IIM Bodh Gaya will operate temporarily from the Institute of Distance Education building of the Magadh University. With a state-of- the-art, newly constructed boys and girls hostels, and knowledge database, IIM Bodh Gaya promises to be the future of business education preparing young graduates for senior-level positions in industry.


The minimum CAT 2016 sectional.percentile requirement has been reduced for differently abled (DA) candidates from 55 to 50 percentile.

The admission process for the PGP program comprises of following stages.

  1. Shortlisting candidates for WAT/PI rounds
  2. Final Selection of candidates.

During the first stage, initially a pool of candidates who satisfy the following minimum CAT 2016 percentiles are considered

Among the pool of candidates who meet the above mentioned percentiles, a list of candidates would be called for attending Written ability test (WAT) and Personal Interview depending on their performance in CAT

One point to be noted here is that for shortlisting candidates for WAT/PI rounds IIM Bodhgaya is considering only the CAT performance of a candidate. This goes on to show that performing well in CAT 2016 would go a long way in securing a WATGD/PI call from this premier B-school.

The following are the weightages that would be considered during the final selection of candidates

To conclude, one important observation about this year's selection process is that the total weightage for parameters which are controllable ( CAT,WAT and PI ) in the final selection stage has been kept at 70%. This ensures that the applicants, who do not have a good academic profile or work experience can still aspire to join IIM Bodh Gaya by performing well in CAT 2016, WAT and PI rounds.
