About KMAT 2018

Karnataka Management Aptitude Test (KMAT) is a national level entrance test conducted by Karnataka Private Post Graduate Colleges Association (KPPGCA). The pen-paper based exam is conducted in more than 10 cities in India for candidates who wish to pursue postgraduate programmes such as MBA, PGDM and MCA. By qualifying the KMAT exam, candidates can get admission in more than 169 AICTE-approved B-schools in Karnataka. These affiliated institutions of Karnataka are counted in the list of well-known B-schools of India. Candidates from India and abroad can sit for KMAT 2018.

KMAT Conducting Body

Karnataka Private Post Graduate Colleges Association (KPPGCA) is the conducting body of KMAT 2018. 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.
