IITs offer MBA programs, admissions based on CAT score

New Delhi: Amid the coronavirus pandemic halted physical studies, Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) will admit students based on the common admission test (CAT) score for admission to their MBA programs like Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs). IITs like Bombay, Delhi, Dhanbad, Jodhpur, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, and Roorkee, are offering admissions to their two-year MBA programs.

As the initiative for MBA admission across IITs, candidates will need to apply at each institute individually. The appliance process across IITs is on. The last date to use is January 31. The further selection process for every IIT is going to be different. While this is often almost like IIM admissions, MBAs offered by IITs are independent and can don’t have anything to try to do with IIMs.

This year, too, most of the top-scoring students in CAT were from an engineering background. Of the nine candidates who scored 100 percentile within the CAT 2020 exam, all were men and 7 were from engineering or technology backgrounds, one was from a mathematics background, and another from a management background. Five of 100 percentile scoring students were from IITs.

At rank 2, as many as 19 candidates have scored an overall 99.99 percentile in CAT 2020, of which 18 are male and one female. Out of those candidates, 16 were from an engineering or technology background. a complete of 1,90,144 candidates had appeared for CAT 2020.
