Admission Process

The common application form for all the four management institutes of Sri Balaji University, Pune, and the thirteen courses can be submitted online or offline with an application fee of INR 1000/-. The successful payment of application fee is followed by issuing of a registration number.

Selection Procedure

Written Examination

We accept management examination test scores such as CAT/MAT/XAT/CMAT/MAH-CET test scores. However, as management examination test scores are issued to the students, any student who has appeared for the management examination test examinations can apply for our courses. Thus, all the four Management institutes will accept management examination test scores. However, the management examination test and scores will be equalized and validated to the CAT score value and that will only be counted for the purpose of the merit list. It is not necessary that these scores should be attached to the Application form at this stage. These scores sheets can be dispatched so as to reach us latest by 28th March 2020. Anyone having any objection to the same, need not apply. We do not believe in any cut-off points as we give only 35% of the weightage for the entrance examination while making the merit list.

Group Discussions

Candidates who fulfill the qualitative requirements will be called for the Group Discussions by experts. This will be for a duration of 30-45 minutes per group. This may include role play, case studies, and extempore speech and GD. 35% of the weightage in the merit list will be given to the GD process. Therefore the GD process may extend to the second day although all efforts will be made to complete the process in one day. This is an elimination round.

Essay Writing as an integral part of the interview process. Written Communication Skill is very important for anyone to succeed in the industry. Therefore, the applicants will be required to appear for an essay writing exercise on a subject, which will be given on the spot in the selection centres. This will be for 30 marks and fifty percent of the marks will be counted. This essay writing will be for half an hour. The topics will be general in nature and anyone who follows the National Newspapers can easily appear for the same and score good marks.

Personal Interviews

This expert panel interview and the essay marks will carry 30% of the weightage . This panel will assess the candidates on various parameters including the suitability of the candidate for a particular specialization. The panel will also give the opportunity to the applicants to add or delete course options.

*Hall Ticket Issued for any Centre will be Valid for All the Centres

Admit Card issued to any centre is valid for all the centres and candidates can appear before the selection committee in any centre provided they have informed about their intention to appear before a selection centre other than the one mentioned in the admit card well in advance. No separate communication for change of centre will be communicated by us.

Documents To Be Submitted During The Interview

The following documents are required to be submitted at the time of interview :

Submission of CAT / MAT / XAT / C-MAT / MAH-CET Result / Score

Candidates should submit the application form with the photostat copy of CAT / MAT / XAT / C-MAT / MAH-CET scores which will be verified during Personal Interview. The latest MAT score which is available with the candidates can be submitted. It may be noted that we are not going to do our shortlisting based on the CAT / MAT / XAT /C-MAT / MAH-CET score alone, although weightage is allotted for the same.


On completion of interviews, we compare the performance of all candidates appearing for the interview and generate a final merit list based on their overall performance. The candidate is considered for the course which he has preferred according to the priority mentioned by him / her in the application form. In case, he / she is not selected for the course applied by him / her, then he / she will be considered for other courses and selected on merit. It may be noted that all the Management courses are of the same status and the inputs are also similar according to specialization. As we have already mentioned the placement opportunities for all the courses are very good as has been proved by the track record of Sri Balaji University.

It means that each institution is important and enjoys equal status and attention from the top management. We select the best possible candidates for all the Institutes from amongst the common pool of all the candidates applied for admission to any or all the institutes of Sri Balaji University, Pune; although such a consideration arises only when a candidate is not selected for admission to the particular institute to which he or she may have applied originally. By doing so, we are in no way taking away any opportunity from anyone but are providing an additional opportunity to get selected in any of the prestigious institutes of Sri Balaji University, Pune.
