The Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent qualification obtained by the candidate must entail a minimum of three years of education after completing higher secondary schooling (10+2) or equivalent. Candidates appearing for the final examination for the Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent examination) and completing all requirements for obtaining the Bachelor’s degree by 30th June, 2021 can also apply, subject to furnishing evidence to that effect latest by 1st October, 2021; otherwise they may be asked to withdraw from the programme.

Eligibility for PGDM-IB

  • Candidates must have 50% marks or equivalent CGPA in both class X and XII along with Bachelor’s Degree (minimum 4 years duration) with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA in any discipline from any University incorporated by an Act of the Central or State legislature in India or other educational institutions established by an Act of Parliament or declared as deemed to be University under Section 3 of UGC Act, 1956, or possess an equivalent qualification recognized by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India and a minimum of 1 year (one year) post-qualification work experience as on 31st December 2020, after completing 4-year’s Bachelor’s degree.
  • PGDM – IB is a twining programme in collaboration with ESCP Europe. On successful completion of PGDM – IB, student will be awarded a Post Graduate Diploma in Management-International Business (PGDM-IB) from MDI Gurgaon and MIM (Masters in Management) from ESCP Europe.

The basis for computing the percentage obtained by the candidate would be based on the practice followed by the university/ institution/board from where the candidate has obtained the degree/certificate. In case of the candidates being awarded grades/CGPA instead of marks, the equivalence would be based on the equivalence certified by the university/ institution/board from where they have obtained bachelor’s degree/certificate. In case the university/ institution/ board does not have any scheme for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by MDI by dividing obtained CGPA(X) with the maximum CGPA(Y) and multiplying fraction so obtained by 100 (Z). e.g. (X)/(Y))*100.
