The subsequent process will consist of-
Essay writing - You will be given a topic related to any current issue or any issue relevant to the social, political or economic situations. You will be given around 20 minutes for this stage of admission process.
Group Discussion - Group Discussion in IIFT is very unique. It goes on for around 45 minutes to 1 hour depending upon the panel. There are around 10 people in the group. Initially everyone will be given a chance to express his/her views on the topic for 2 minutes. After that the discussion will be made open for another 20-30 minutes. Not only this, you will also have to play the role of a moderator at some point of time. The sequence of getting to moderate the group is upto the discretion of the panel. While you are a moderator, you will have to make sure that the discussion is going in the right direction and there is no fish market.
Personal Interview - - The Personal Interview is for an overall personality assessment evaluating one's communication skills and general awareness. In interview, Questions are asked mainly from these three basic areas - Self based questions (around your personality, strengths, leadership skills etc.), Careers vision questions (short and long term vision, goal oriented etc.) and Knowledge based questions (Largely around your area of work and study and general awareness). The CV form that you will fill is also of a great importance. So write your answers carefully and honestly. Also start introspecting the questions like -
Short term and long term objectives of life?
Why low academics? (for those who have low scores)
Why MBA after job? (for people with work-ex)
Why MBA after, lets say, computer science engineering? (for freshers)
