This document details the process that will be adopted for selecting candidates for Admission to the Master of Business Administration (MBA), Tourism Management at the Indian Institute of Management Sirmaur (IIMS) for 2024-26.

IIM Sirmaur considers the Common Admission Test (CAT) as an evaluation criterion for admitting students in its MBA programs. IIMS adopts a two-phase selection process. The first phase of the process is applied to all eligible candidates who meet the cut-off criteria as mentioned in Table 1 be shortlisted for a personal interview (PI).

The second phase consists of preparing the final selection/merit list on the basis of the composite score arrived at using weightages as per valid CAT-2023 score, PI score, academic profile, work experience and diversity (academic disciplines and other criteria), as mentioned in Table-2.
