    MBA in IIMs are fully regular course. If you are now doing the job and you want to continue for your job then you should go for distance learning course for MBA. But if you leave your job then you can apply for IIM. For this you have to apply for CAT entrance exam. The eligibility criteria for CAT entrance test is 50% and above marks in Graduation from a recognized university. It is 45% for SC/ST candidates.

    If you want to go for MBA in IIM then you should first register for CAT exam in www.catiim.in. You need to get good percentile in CAT exam. After completing CAT exam you have to apply for MBA in IIM.

    After that you will be called for Group discussions and Interview test. You need to pass all these exams for getting admission in IIM. But if you are now still in job then you have problems to continue your study in IIM.

    So if you want to continue your job then you should go for distance education for MBA course. In this you can choose IGNOU and give the entrance test of OPENMAT. If you want to go for another university then you can get direct admission. Best of luck.

    Hello Friend ,

    ​See you , cannot apply directly for the MBA course , all you need to do is that you have to sit for CAT entrance exam which is conducted by

    IIMs Institute every year in the month of November and registration process begin in the month of July , for selecting candidates for

    Management programme . As you have said that you have all the basic qualification , so what are you waiting for just apply for CAT exam

    in the month of July 2013 , and sit for CAT exam and one thing i would like to add here is that applying or siting in CAT exam does not

    insure that you are allowed to do course for MBA in IIM (A) , you need to bring above 90 percentile if you belong to General Category and if

    you belong to SC/ST category then there is a cut off that is of you need to bring 75 percentile or more then that .


    As you have said that you have experienced for a years , then surely it would add advantage during personal interview round .

    HERE IS THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE FOR YOU THAT I HAVE POSTED , THAT WILL SURELY HELP YOU IN YOUR NEAR FUTURE :

    yes, you most definitely can. in fact if you have work experience from a respected company it might just be advantageous to you during the group discussion and personal interview round. although not explicitly stated it is generally believed that candidates with work experience are given a slight preference during the admission process of most B-schools. some colleges even allot marks for work experience.
    so just study well for the entrance exams ( CAT, XAT, MAT, NMAT, IIFT, SNAP, CMAT) and once you make it to the second round be ready to be questioned thoroughly regarding your work experience.

    all the best
