2. I don't have Maharashtra domicile can I apply?

Students outside Maharashtra can apply for the all India seats. Last year there were 18 All India seats for MMS and 6 All India seats for PGDBM courses

3. What is MMS? I have heard about PGDBM is it the same?

MMS i.e. (Masters in Management studies) is the Management degree offered by University of Mumbai. PGDBM (Post Graduate diploma in Business management) is an autonomous course offered at SIMSREE and it is offered by The Government of Maharashtra. The selection process, curriculum and the placement process for both are the same.

4. Which Scores are considered at SIMSREE?

The admissions at SIMSREE for both MMS and PGDBM, happens through the CAP. Till last year, the Maharashtra state candidates were required to give CET while the ALL India seats were filled through CET, CMAT or CAT scores. But since CMAT has replaced CET and it is an All India level Examination, there is a probability that CAT may not be considered for All India level seats either. But, this is a mere speculation and DTE is yet to come with a detailed notification to the effect.

5. What were the cut-offs last year?










Maharashtra students-226


6. What is the seat distribution at SIMSREE?

MMS HU – General 38, Reserved 46 (includes PH candidates) OHU – General 9, Reserved 9 (No reservation for PH candidates) AI – 18 (no Reservations) PGDBM Maharashtra state candidates – General 25, Reserved 29 (includes PH candidates) AI – 6 (no Reservations)

7. The batch strength is of 180 students, while the placement report is for 107. Why the discrepancy?

The seats have been increased from 120 to 180 just last year i.e. ours is the first batch of 180.The placement report is for 120 students. And the others not included have either taken up an off campus job or opted for entrepreneurship. 8. What are the tuition and hostel fees per year?

The tuition fee is Rs.69000/- out of which Rs.2000/- is refundable. And the hostel fee is Rs.8k per year.

9. Do we need to fill a separate form for PGDBM?

No, the admission for PGDBM at SIMSREE will be through CAP round.

The expected distribution of marks is as follows,
