Faculty of Management Studies (FMS) on Wednesday announced that the entrance test for admission to its Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS) programme will be held on June 2.

The entire application process will be online and forms will be available from June 7 to June 18, officials said.

According to Dean, Faculty of Management Studies, the results of the entrance exam will be announced on July 4 and admission to  respective colleges will be finalised by July 18 or 19.

The course is expected to commence by July 21. Counselling sessions for the programme will be held at the University Conference Centre.

Students can buy the application form by paying Rs 500 for general, OBC and CW categories. It will cost Rs 250 for SC/ST/PWD candidates.

Admissions to the course, which was introduced last year, will be conducted on the basis of Class XII ‘best of four’ percentage and an entrance exam. Both scores will be given a 50-50 weightage.

Bachelor of Management Studies is one of the most sought-after courses at the University. Last year, around 16,000 students appeared for the entrance test. It was introduced by the University last year after doing away with three courses — Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS), Bachelor of Financial Investment and Analysis (BFIA) and BA (honours) Business Economics (BBE), as part of the four-year undergraduate programme.

The course is offered by six colleges — Sukhdev College of Business Studies, Deen Dyal Upadhyaya College,  Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Maharaja Agrasen College, College of Vocational Studies and B R Ambedkar College — with a total of 840 seats up for grabs.
