The Indian Institute of Management Kashipur is a new entrant in the elite league of IIMs. The institute is set up with the objective of providing quality management education while sensitizing students towards the needs of the society.

IIM Kashipur commenced operations from July 2011 under the mentorship of IIM Lucknow. The institute offers Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGPM), a two year full time residential programme. The rigorous curriculum seeks to instil a passion for knowledge and ability to apply that knowledge to real life scenarios. The programme lays emphasis on all-round personality development and inculcates the values of leadership and integrity.

The institute is located in one of the most densely industrialized regions in the country with over 180 industries having plants in and around the region and many more coming up. This places the institute at a vantage point when it comes to ‘Learning by Doing’ via frequent industry interactions and live projects.

IM Kashipur has released its admission criteria for 2016-18 PGP batch. 

 Changes when compared to last year

 

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

 

 Admission Process: 

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

  1. 1.Shortlisting candidates for WAT/GD//PI round. 
  2. 2.Final Selection of candidates post WAT/GD/PI round 

 

 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 Kashipur 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 82%. This ensures that the applicants, who do not have a good academic profile or work experience can still aspire to join IIM Kashipur by preparing well for CAT 2016, WAT and PI rounds.
