• Q

    Can I get admission in Goa institute of management on basis of GMAT score

  • A

    Yes - Goa Institute of Management accepts GMAT as valid entrance test for the admission process along with CAT, XAT, and CMAT.


    However, keep in mind that GMAT should have been taken between 1st Jan 2017 and 20th Jan 2019 (although GMAT scores are valid for 5 years).


    The cut-offs for the Class of 2019 were as follows -- CAT: 85th percentile; XAT: 80th percentile; CMAT: 93rd percentile. Thus, you should target at least 650 in GMAT in purely equivalent percentile term.

    I have 48% marks in graduation However it was 64% in 12th.. Can I get admission

  • A

    The minimum eligibility criteria for admission to Amity Global Business School, Mumbai's PGPM+MBA (2 years) program is Graduation with min. 50% marks, and min. 50% marks in 10+2. So, looks like you do not meet the eligibility criteria. We'd still advice you to connect with the B-School and enquire whether they can make an exception.

    By Executive MBA, do you mean full-time, 1 year, residential management education for experienced professionals? If yes, then you can explore the following programs - 


    PGPX, IIM Ahmedabad

    EPGP, IIM Bangalore

    IPMX, IIM Lucknow

    PGPeX, IIM Calcutta

    EPGP, IIM Indore

    PGDM-GM, XLRI Jamshedpur

    PGPM, SPJIMR Mumbai

    NMP, MDI Gurgaon

    PGDM-Executive, IMT Ghaziabad

    ExPGDM, IMI New Delhi

    PGDMX(R), IRMA Anand


    To be eligible for these programs, you need to be a graduate in any discipline with more than 5 years of full-time work experience and managerial potential. You also need to write Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), however, some of these programs accept CAT as well as XAT scores. 


    Also be advised that the admission to most of these programs is highly competitive and clearing the minimum eligibility criteria is not sufficient to secure admission. Check for the expenses and the average salaries upon graduation, and compare it with what you are earning at present. An MBA at your level is a substantial investment, which may or may not deliver the desired results.
