MBA Admissions in Maharashtra 2022

Maharashtra is one of the most preferred destinations for pursuing an MBA course in India. Almost all the B-schools in Maharashtra consider the score of all the national-level management entrance exams for MBA admissions, like CATMATXAT, etc. More than 100 colleges in Maharashtra accept the scores of MAH MBA CET, a state-level entrance exam, conducted by the State Common Entrance Test Cell, Maharashtra.

Students with a valid score in any of the management entrance exams can find a management college that suits their needs and requirements. MBA Colleges in Maharashtra include many top-ranked B-schools in India. B-schools located in cities like Mumbai and Pune are always on the list of the top 20 MBA Colleges in India.

Maharashtra is one of the states that conduct the Centralised Admission Process (CAP) for state-level MBA admissions through MAH MBA CET. The Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) Maharashtra is responsible for conducting MBA admissions in Maharashtra. Students can check all the details of MBA admissions in Maharashtra 2022 here.

MBA Admissions in Maharashtra 2022: Selection Process

There are three ways in which a candidate in Maharashtra is selected to get admission to MBA colleges in the state. Candidates must go through the following selection processes to get a clearer understanding:

Selection Process Through MAH MBA CET/CAT/GMAT/CMAT Exams

  • DTE Maharashtra will manage the registration process for CAP (Centralised Admission Process).

  • Candidates with a valid MAH MBA CET/CAT/GMAT/CMAT score are eligible to register for DTE CAP.

  • The selection process is based on the MBA/MMS merit list released by DTE Maharashtra.

  • The seat allocation will be based on the rank or merit of the candidates in the entrance exams.

  • During the counselling process, the candidates will have to exercise web options.

  • Based on rank and college preferences, DTE will allocate seats.

  • Usually, DTE Maharashtra conducts four rounds of CAP, and the candidates who are not able to secure a seat in the first round of CAP can take part in subsequent rounds.

  • Maharashtra domicile students are eligible to take part in DTE CAP.

Selection Process Through Other Entrance Exams

  • Students who are not interested to take part in DTE CAP can apply for popular B-Schools individually with a state or national-level entrance test core.

  • These institutes may shortlist the candidates based on their entrance test scores.

  • The shortlisted candidates will have to take part in other stages of the selection process that involve Group Discussion/Written Ability Test/Personal Interview.

  • The institutes will decide the mode of the selection process.

  • The final selection for MBA/ MMS course is based on the candidate’s performance in all stages of the selection process.

Direct MBA Admission/ Management Quota Admission in Maharashtra

  • Students who did not take part in DTE CAP or were unable to secure seats can approach the private colleges and deemed universities directly for admission under the management quota.

  • The individual institution decides the eligibility criteria for management quota admission.

  • DTE sanctioned 20% of seats to each private management institute that can be filled through the management quota.

Entrance Exams Accepted by Maharashtra MBA Colleges

DTE Maharashtra conducts a state-level MBA entrance exam, i.e., MAH MBA CET for admission into MBA/MMS courses in government, private and semi-government management colleges. Apart from MAH MBA CET, most of the B-Schools in Maharashtra accept the score of other national-level entrance exams for MBA/ MMS admissions.
