Karnataka Private Post Graduate Colleges Association (KPPGCA) is the conducting body of KMAT 2019. KPPGCA was established in 2003, for providing admission in MBA, MCA, PGDM courses in various recognised and self-financing colleges in the Karnataka state. KMAT is approved by Karnataka government. KPPGCA was formed to support vocational and professional courses and to streamline and facilitate admission to these postgraduate subjects. All the colleges in Karnataka that offer postgraduate courses are liable to accept the score of KMAT for admission into MCA, MBA and PGDM. Candidates, however, should know that the score of KMAT alone cannot confirm their admission into the postgraduate courses. There are few more parameters when it comes to finalising candidates.
