The admission process for the FPM process of IMI-Delhi is a three step process. The steps are as follows
A. Admission form & indication of research interest: The applicant needs to complete the FPM application form. The form has to be accompanied by an abstract of 1000-1500 words about the proposed research area/topic. This may be broad based at this juncture but is critical for gauging the applicants interest.
B. Admission/ eligibility tests: the candidate should have cleared any of the following tests
- Common Admission Test (CAT) held by the IIMs. Alternatively, the GMAT score is also considered valid for the purpose of applying for the course. Scores of CAT/GMAT taken on or after 01 January, 2014 will be considered valid for admission to the session of 2018.
- Alternatively, the candidates could appear in the test conducted by IMI for the program.
- The recently qualified JRF/SRF candidates can also apply (Please note this should not be later than two years of the JRF offer letter, in this case 2016) in the relevant areas of specialization but they would need to appear in the test conducted by IMI.
a. Indian candidates who do not have a CAT score will have to appear for either GMAT or IMI internal test (Administered only at IMI, New Delhi).
b. NRIs and foreign candidates will also need to appear in the CAT/GMAT/or IMI internal test.
C. Admission Interview: Based on the research abstract and the scores obtained in CAT/GMAT or IMI internal test, evaluation of past academic performance and relevant work experience, candidates will be called for an interview for final selection.
