Deemed Universities across the state also follow similar admission procedure depending on the number of applications received seeking MBA admission.

Direct MBA Admission/ Management Quota Admission: Candidates without a valid score any of the MBA entrance exams need not worry as they can take direct admission through the management quota of the institute. The fee charged under management quota is higher than the state quota or concession quota fees. Private MBA colleges across Tamil Nadu reserve at least 20% seats under management quota.
