The Indian Institute of Management Lucknow (abbreviated IIM Lucknow or IIM-L) is an autonomous public business school in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India. It was established in 1984 as the fourth Indian Institute of Management (IIM) by the Government of India. IIM Lucknow offers post-graduate diploma, fellowship and executive programs in management. It is recognised as an "Institution of Excellence" by India's Ministry of Human Resource Development. IIM Lucknow also serves as the mentor institution for the newly established IIM Rohtak and IIM Kashipur.

The institute is on a 200-acre site in the northern outskirts of Lucknow. It has a second campus at Noida exclusively for executive education. The admission for the post graduate and fellowship programmes is done through Common Admission Test (CAT), while GMAT score is used for the executive MBA program. The programs are accredited by the global accreditation body AMBA. The institute has tie-ups with 24 leading B-schools across the world for student exchange. Many management, competitions, cultural, and sports events are organised by committees throughout the year.

Changes when compared to last year -

  • The minimum eligibile CAT overall percentile for SC/ST candidates has been reduced by 5 percentile points.
  • The minimum eligibile CAT overall percentile for DA candidates has been reduced by 10 percentile points.

Admission Process:

The admission process for the PGP program comprises two stages.

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

During the first stage, initially a pool of candidates who satisfy the following minimum CAT 2017 percentiles are considered.

Among the pool of candidates who meet the above mentioned percentiles, a list of candidates who would be called for attending Written ability test (WAT) and Personal Interview rounds is generated using the following parameters.

Components CAT score (CS) Class - XII marks (12M) Graduation marks (GM) Work Experience (WE) Diversity Factor : Academic Discipline (D Fa) Diversity Factor: Gender (DFb) Total (A)

Weights (PGP)

One point to be noted here is that IIM Lucknow has given 60 marks out of 100 marks to CAT performance of a candidate. This goes on to show that performing well in CAT 2017 would go a long way in securing a WAT/PI call from this premier B-school.

Stage 2 - Final selection of candidates

The following are the parameters and their weightages during the WAT/PI stage (same for all three programs)

Note:The minimum requirement for getting a pass in Personal Interviews is 12 out of 40 marks. Names of candidates who do not pass in PI will not be included in the final merit list.

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 a whopping 80%. This ensures that the applicants, who do not have a good academic profile or work experience can still aspire to join IIM Lucknow by preparing well for CAT 2017, WAT and PI rounds.
