JNU begins admission process for MBA course

Selection will be based on CAT scores

Jawaharlal Nehru University on Sunday started taking admission into its newly established ‘Atal Bihari Vajpayee School of Management and Entrepreneurship’ for 2019-20.

CAT scores

The school will offer a two-year MBA programme and admission will be done based on scores of the Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted in 2018 by IIMs. Students will have to first apply online on the JNU website and then submit their CAT registration number.

“JNU will use CAT scores for shortlisting/ selecting candidates for the MBA programme. IIMs have no role either in the selection process or in conducting of the programme. The aspirants who qualify based on their CAT score will be shortlisted and then called for an interview,” said the university.

There will be 50 seats on offer in the first batch. The weightage on CAT scores and marks obtained in the interviews will be 70% and 30% respectively. The university will follow the reservation policy as per the Central government rules.

“Since MBA is a professional course, no additional deprivation points [as it may be the case in some other JNU courses] will be taken into consideration for admission,” said the university. Online application will close on March 1 and dates for MBA viva/ interview of shortlisted candidates will be held on April 15, 16 and 18. Final results will be declared on April 26.
