GIM Goa PGDM Admissions Process 2023

The overall admissions process of GIM GOA PGDM admissions 2023 can be bifurcated into two routes, Achievers Round and Regular Round.

Achiever’s Round

GIM considers students from certain educational institutions on a merit basis for direct admissions. These students are invited to attend the admissions process of the Achievers round, where the aptitude level and the shortlisting process are designed to suit the high-achieving educational background and academic record of these students. They are hence made Spot Offer, or direct admission, on clearance of the said round. The top 10% of the class, the top three students of the batch, or those with an aggregate of over 60% from 78 select institutes are invited under this route as ELITE applications.

The admission process of the round is as follows:

Step 1: Students need to register online as users on the official website of GIM Goa and apply for their chosen PGDM course.

Step 2: Once they upload all the required documents and test scores their application shall be submitted through a shortlisting process. If they happen to fall in the category of ELITE applications, then they get invited to the Achiever’s round.

Step 3: They need to participate in the specially designed Group Discussions and Personal Interview sessions, which are a part of the Achiever’s round.

Step 4: If they make themselves appear as worthy candidates for GIM Goa’s PGDM courses, then a direct admission offer is made to them by the selection committee of the business school.

Step 5: If they accept the offer then an Admission Letter is presented to them, which is a contractual confirmation of their enrollment to the business school.

Step 6: The students need to attend their counselling sessions, and on the basis of their Admission Letter, can tour the campuses of the business school.

Regular Round

In this round, the normal process of admissions is undertaken. The overall admissions process is as follows:

Step 1: Students need to register themselves and apply for PGDM programmes as offered by the business school.

Step 2: Their application is reviewed by the shortlisting committee, and if they do not fall in the category of ELITE applications, then their application is forwarded for selection on the basis of general selection criteria.

Step 3: The applicants are called for the selection on basis of general admission procedures.

Step 4: On the basis of their performance in regular rounds of selection, a merit list is issued, generally in two to three successive lists.

Step 6: Subsequently, enrolled students can attend counselling, tour the campus, and book accommodations.

However, the scores make up for 40% of the total shortlisting process and hence students need to record a competitive entrance exam score to make it through the admissions process.
