“JNU will use CAT scores for short listing/selecting candidates for the MBA programme. IIMs have no role either in the selection process or in conducting of the programme. The aspirants who qualify based on their CAT score will be shortlisted and then called for an interview,” said the university.
The first batch of the MBA course in JNU will offer 50 seats. The university will give 70 percent weightage to the CAT score and 30 percent weightage will be given to the marks obtained in the interviews. The university will follow the reservation policy as per the Central government rules.
“Since MBA is a professional course, no additional deprivation points [as it may be the case in some other JNU courses will be taken into consideration for admission,” said the university.
