There will be two rounds of admission. The first will shortlist candidates on the basis of their score in CAT 2011. Those who qualify this round will be called for Personal Interview round. In this round, the student will be asked to write a short note (one page long) on any topic given by the institute.

Then marks scored in graduation are considered.

No other professional course is eligible for weight under professional course.
Weightage given to four components-:

|Class X11 (Board):||10%|
Those who get the desired results are called for second round which comprises of Note Writing and Personal Interview. Interviewers will mark students on Note Content, Note Style and Personal Interview.
The work experience score will be multiplied by the quality of experience score, as evaluated by the interviewing panel. The quality of work experience score will be evaluated on a 5 point scale (0 - 0.5 - 1 - 1.5 - 2) by each member of the panel during the interviews. The average quality of work experience score will be multiplied by the pre-PI work experience score and accordingly the work/professional experience component score (maximum score 5) used in Phase 1 will be revised in Phase 2 (maximum score 10).
