Executive MBA at IIMs - Courses, Eligibility & Fees

by Bhavna Sharma

Executive MBA programs by IIMs are extremely popular and competitive. The admission process is not very different from that of a regular management programs, thus making the competition as still as for regular programs. However, the number of applicants is lesser as these programs are specially designed for working professionals and are niche programs that focus on just one specialization.

Eligibility Criteria

Eligibility, fee, duration and mode of lectures may differ from program to program as per the length of the course curriculum. Generic eligibility criteria for all executive programs at IIMs are:

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent from a recognized university
  • Minimum work exp to be between 2-10 years (varies as per the program)
  • Age limit is a minimum of 27 years of age.

Teaching Mode

Among different executive courses at IIMs, some are residential and some non-residential. Residential programs have a higher fee as compared to the non-residential (distance learning programs) ones and also require to take a sabbatical from work. Distance learning executive MBA programs have weekend or online lectures; therefore students can continue with their jobs while pursuing these programs. Look at the table below for more details on which courses are full time residential programs and which of these are distance learning executive MBAs.

Admission Procedure

Admission to IIMs executive programs is not very different from admission process for other programs. Eligible candidates essentially need to appear for the common admission test (CAT), conducted by the IIMs every year, for admission to all their management programs. Alternatively a GMAT score might be required. Check admission details for your desired program,. Following this exam, qualifying students will be required to appear for a round of group discussion and personal interview. However, the group discussion round has now been replaced by another written test known as the common analysis test which would test a candidate on comprehension ability and communication skill.

    Before doing your MBA, please take a course in basic English language. You won't be accepted by any company, if you have such poor English language skills. Take it positively, just trying to open your eyes.
