Xavier Institute of Management
Last date: 8th December, 2017
Xavier University Bhubaneswar (XUB) sees itself as a quality institute delivering quality management education to quality students from the world over. The Xavier University came into being with the Government of Odisha passing the Xavier University Act in June 2013. It inherits the legacy of XIMB (Xavier Institute of Management Bhubaneswar), a premier world class B-School in the country.
The minimum requirement for admission to the Program is a three-year Bachelor’s Degree (or equivalent) in any discipline with at least 55% marks in aggregate from a recognised university. Candidates who expect to complete the final part of their degree examinations by June 15, 2018, can also apply. Offers of admission to such candidates, if made, will be provisional and will be automatically cancelled in the event of their failing to complete all the requirements for obtaining the degree before June 15, 2018.
Applicants are required to take any one of the Admission Tests:
- XAT to be conducted by XLRI, Jamshedpur, on 7 January 2018, or
- CAT to be conducted by IIMs on 26 November 2017, or
- GMATtaken in 2016 or 2017 (minimum score for applying 550) or
- X-GMT to be conducted by Xavier University Bhubaneswar on 28 January 2018. Applicants opting for XAT/CAT have to follow XAT/CAT advertisements respectively and apply in time. Registering for XAT/CAT/GMAT is a prerequisite for applying to XIMB, if not opting for X-GMT.
The Institute will decide the section-wise as well as total cut-off marks which will be used for short-listing the candidates to be called for Writing Ability Test, and Personal Interview. WAT, & PI will be held in Bangalore, Bhubaneswar, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai. Candidates will have to meet their own travel expenses for appearing in the Interview session. The final selection will be made on the basis of the candidate’s performance in the XAT/CAT/GMAT/X-GMT as well as in the Writing Ability Test, and Personal Interview (which factors in the past academic record and relevant work experience). The selected candidates will be informed by mail in the month of April 2018.
The program will begin by the middle of June 2018 for the first year students. At this time the students will be given a Manual of Policies and Regulations which will be binding on them.
