Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) will enroll students based on the common admission test (CAT) score for admission to their MBA programmes — much like Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs). Eight IITs, including in Bombay, Delhi, Dhanbad, Jodhpur, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, and Roorkee, are offering admissions to their two-year MBA programmes.

As the first step for MBA admission across IITs, candidates will have to apply at each institute individually. The application process across IITs is on. The last date to apply is January 31. Further selection process for each IIT will be different. While this is similar to IIM admissions, MBAs offered by IITs are independent and will have nothing to do with IIMs.
