Great Lakes Institute of Management has extended the application deadline for the full time One Year Post Graduate Program in Management (PGPM) to 11th February, 2018. According to the B-School, the extension has been given considering that XAT results have not been announced yet and applicants awaiting their XAT results can apply in the extended period. XAT 2018 result is expected to be declared on February 10, 2018. The last date to apply for the PGPM programmes offered in the Great Lakes Institute of Management Chennai and Great Lakes Institute of Management Gurgaon campuses.
The last date to apply for the PGDM programme is February 25, 2018. The classes for both PGPM and PGDM programmes will commence from April/May 2018. While the original date for declaring XAT 2018 result was January 31, 2018, but was postponed owing to the retest. Conducted on January 7, 2018, the first ever computer based XAT 2018 was marred with technical glitches. Hence, a retest will be conducted by XLRI Jamshedpur only for those candidates whose test was cancelled on February 3, 2018.
