At AIM, each prospective International MBA student is evaluated based on the following parameters:


Academic Credentials

Past academic performance and your GMAT/ GRE/ NMAT by GMAC (CAT / XAT for Indian applicants) score help the Institute evaluate your ability to cope with the rigor of the International MBA program. Academic distinctions and certification scores, wherever applicable, are also considered.

Leadership Potential

Applicants are evaluated based on the impact they have made in their professional and personal lives. The metrics used for this assessment are:

    • Initiatives the applicant may have spearheaded
    • Previous job responsibilities and accomplishments
    • Career progression achieved to date
    • Professional recommendations also help gauge the leadership potential of an applicant in a real-world setting.

The Individual

A versatile, well-rounded individual — one who is intellectually curious and has a range of interests, experiences, and hobbies — who will actively bring their unique perspective into the classroom and share their insights can help cultivate an energetic and supportive learning environment for all.

A wealth of experience is also important. AIM encourages applicants from various backgrounds to become part of the International MBA program. Diversity across multiple areas (e.g., work experience, education, culture) are also factored into the application process.


  • Must have a bachelor’s degree (or an equivalent qualification in any discipline, to be evaluated by the program’s Admissions Committee)
  • Must have at least two (2) years’ work experience. Consideration may be given to candidates with limited work experience but have demonstrated leadership abilities in other areas, such as volunteer work or community service.
