Q. I am in final year of BTech. I have heard that there is a direct entry for engineering students into doctoral programmes in the IIMs without having to do an MBA. Is this correct? — Saloni Sehrawat
A. Yes it is! As of now, the eligibility for direct admission to the four-year doctoral programme at the IIMs is a 4-year BE/BTech/BSc (8 CGPA)
Alternatively, you need a master’s degree (2-year or integrated 5-year), a 2-year PG diploma or a professional qualification such as CA/ICWA/CS with B Com to be admitted to the three-year PhD programme at the IIMs.
In a recent meeting with the Education Secretary of MHRD, the IIMs have collectively urged the government to reconsider the requirement for direct entry by reducing the CGPA to 6 points for BE/BTech students and enrol those with a 1-year PG Diploma. The final decision is awaited).
