Admission criteria of IIM Tiruchirappalli

Indian Institute of Management Tiruchirappalli (IIM Trichy or IIM T) shall be offering its Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) course for the academic year starting June 2013. It plans to invite about One hundred (100) students for the PGP batch of 2013-15. This document details the process that would be adopted for selecting candidates for admission to the PGP at IIM Trichy for the batch of 2013-15. IIM T reserves the right to modify any part of this document including the various criteria and cut offs mentioned at any time till the actual admission process for the batch is completed.

The admission process of IIM Trichy seeks to identify the most promising candidates based on its mission statement for the PGP programme. The process takes into consideration the CAT score, the performance in Personal Interviews(PI) & Written Analysis Test (WAT), the candidate’s academic performance as well as his or her passion for continued learning which can be seen in acquiring Master’s degree or a professional qualification (a pass in the final examination of CA / ICWA / CS) and relevant work experience which would have added significantly to his / her personality that would bring richness to the class room.

IIM T’s vision is to "Prepare young minds to contribute to the betterment of the global society". It thus aims at preparing its students for global leadership roles emerging from India in the decades to come. It also believes that its students should act as change agents with socially responsive behavior. It is for these reasons, it will have special weightages for parameters like communication ability and personality, managerial and leadership attributes, and social awareness and disposition in its selection process. It places a special emphasis on “social competence” of the student in its selection.

It aims at "creating an environment that encourages students having diverse backgrounds to achieve excellence in the field of their choice, through holistic, functional and relevant education. An educational process that promotes ethics, critical inquiry, creativity and originality, emphasizing interdisciplinary approach and lays foundation for lifelong learning”. Thus, it would like to select students with diverse backgrounds.

IIM Trichy shall adopt a philosophy of “experiential learning” where students would be encouraged to learn through field work, projects and live assignments in the industry along with case based methodology. IIM T shall partner with the industry for providing support by training and consulting activities and shall seek help from the industry by inviting their key executives and top management to talk to the students and for making available the live assignments to the students. It also believes in ongoing learning and feels that learning is a never ending process. It would, therefore, provide an extra weightage for students with a Master’s degree or a Professional qualification (a pass in the final examination of Institute of Chartered Accountants of India or Institute of Cost and Works Accountants of India or Institute of Company Secretaries of India) to acknowledge their passion for continued learning.

IIM Trichy shall foster a culture that would develop a “spirit of inquiry” among its students by offering them an “intellectual freedom” to explore knowledge. It shall inculcate a practice of “data based decision making” and a “spirit of collaboration” among its students. Its students should be able to work in and lead a global team of managers. “Integrity” and “ethical behavior” will be the foundations of IIM Tiruchirappalli. Attempts would be made to assess these qualities in the candidates during the Written Analysis Test (WAT) and Personal Interviews (PI).

It shall provide facilities for acquisition of knowledge, information and advancement of culture and Indian values to the Indian as well as foreign students. Tiruchirappalli is a great, historical city known for its rich heritage and has a legacy of providing quality education. IIM Trichy is proud to be in this great city.
