IIM Ranchi Admission Process

Indian Institute of Management, Ranchi is one of the best management colleges in our country. Many management aspirants work hard to get admission in this institute. To secure a seat the candidates need to fulfil some IIM Ranchi admission criteria.

IIM Ranchi required a bachelor’s degree of minimum 3 years duration with  50% marks or equivalent CGPA. In the case of the candidate belonging to SC/ST/PWD category, the eligibility criterion is restrained to 45%. Students will be shortlisted on the basis of their GMAT/CAT scores and their previous academic educations.

Shortlisted candidates are informed for a round of personal interview (PI). Finally, they will be selected on the basis of their PI and GMAT/CAT marks. Candidates need to deliver IIM Ranchi PGDHRM eligibility and IIM Ranchi PGDM eligibility

Admission Highlights

  • All the IIMs usually follow a two-step process of selection. First, short-listing on the basis of the Common Admission Test (CAT) result and after that Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI).
  • Candidates who cleared the first stage of the admission criteria are informed for WAT and PI rounds. 
  •  IIM Ranchi gives maximum weight to Personal Interview and CAT number for admissions. However, a topic like academic cut-offs, performance,  experienced in relevant work, past academic etc. also play an important role in the final selection.
