The academic sessions will start in July for the first batch of 60 students and in November for the second batch of 60 students. The selected applicants will be informed about the batch details in the Offer Letter.
The University uses multiple criteria for selection of candidates.
Following are the components of the Selection Process:
- Filling up of the Application form
- NU Management Aptitude Test
- Analytics Aptitude Test
- Psychometric Profiling for Learnability
- Group Discussion
- Personal Interview
- Background verification for shortlisted candidates
Application & Screening – NU seeks applications from interested candidates who meet the eligibility criteria and who are desirous of pursuing the MBA (Business Analytics) Programme. Profiles would be screened to weed out applications not meeting the eligibility criteria. Such applicants will not be invited for the Aptitude Test nor will their profiles be rated.
NU Management Aptitude Test – All invited candidates would need to undertake the NU Management Aptitude Test which will be conducted at 15 locations across the country. The test will measure management aptitude in three areas– Quantitative Ability, Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension and Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning. The duration of the test will be one hour and the questions will be multiple choice.
Analytics Aptitude Test —Analytics Aptitude Test will be held together with NU Management Aptitude Test. The duration of the test will be one hour and multiple choice questions will be asked from the following areas: Set theory, Solution of Quadratic equations with real coefficients, Arithmetic, geometric and harmonic progressions and means, Permutations and combinations, Binomial theorem, Matrices, Linear Algebra, Coordinate geometry in two dimensions, Differential calculus, Integral calculus, Differential equations, Numerical Analysis.
