List of Management Entrance Exam (MBA)-University Level

Universites Entrance ExamsWhile the Common Admission Test (CAT) is the most popular entrance exam for applicants applying to MBA programs at the Indian Institutes of (MBA) Management (IIMs) and other top B-Schools in the country, there are a variety of other entrance exams to consider. Some of them are the Xavier Aptitude Test (XAT), the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) MBA (IB), and the Common (MBA) Management Admission Test (CMAT).

When the idea of taking an MBA comes up in India, IIMs, XLRI Jamshedpur, and a slew of other top MBA schools spring to mind. However, due to competitive entrance requirements and a limited number of seats, not everyone can attend IIMs/XLRI or any other elite business school.

CAT 2021 registration is now ended, and the exam will be held on November 28. MBA aspirants can also take these entrance tests to improve their chances of admission, as CAT is a highly competitive exam. More information about these seven MBA entrance exams in India may be found here.
