Selection process

The selection process is a competitive merit-based process with 2 selection rounds:

  • Screening round: After you submit your application, your application will be reviewed by the SPJIMR admissions team to check and validate if you fulfil the eligibility criteria. Your application will be evaluated on your academic performance, your work experience and any additional qualifications earned by you.

  • Group discussion round (GD round): If your application is shortlisted in the screening round, you will be invited for a final round of an online panel discussion with the SPJIMR faculty. After this round, if your candidature is found fit for the PGDM Online programme, you will receive an offer of admission from SPJIMR.

Note: There are limited seats in the 2024-2026 cohort, so completing your application and GD round early (if invited) increases your chances of getting an early decision on your candidature.
