Candidates who had applied for the institute during the application process will receive the letter of admission on the registered e-mail ID if they have cleared the cut-off set by the institute. Candidates will have to accept the letter in order to secure a seat.

IIM Nagpur offers 60 seats in the PGP programme. Although there will be no GD-PI, the institute will consider a candidate’s academic background and work experience along with CAT 2016 scores. The detailed selection criteria of IIM Nagpur is given below:
