Following the successful administration of the IBSAT2023 on December 23rd and 24th, 2023, prospective applicants who have qualified for the test now face the next stage: the rigorous Selection Process.

The Personal Interview segment offers a platform for face-to-face interaction, enabling assessors to evaluate candidates comprehensively. Beyond academic acumen, attributes such as personality, presentation skills, communication prowess, presence of mind, body language, confidence, and attitude are scrutinized, aligning with the multifaceted demands of MBA/PGPM education.
Similarly, the Group Discussion segment serves as a crucible wherein candidates are evaluated across various parameters, including subject knowledge, academic track record, and leadership aptitude. The GD fosters an environment conducive to showcasing candidates’ analytical and interpersonal skills, thereby fostering a competitive yet collaborative atmosphere.
