The second PGDM programme is the one semester abroad programme.
Question: What about admissions and cutoff for ISBR Business School?
Answer: We accept the scores of CAT, XAT, MAT but if any student has not taken any test among these then he/she can appear for our own entrance test but we emphasize on the scores of these exams. This is the primary criteria for admissions followed by the GDPI process. Students getting 80 percentile or above can safely secure admissions at ISBR. We do not look for the toppers;rather we look for the communication, business awareness skills, and attitude of the student.
