What is unique about our Integrated MBA Admission Process?
At NU, it is important for us to find the right students and we also believe that it is important for the students to find the right institution. We believe that the parent/guardian forms the crucial third pillar without whom the process of selection would remain incomplete. Hence we have devised, what we believe is, an apt integrated MBA programme admission process that gives an opportunity for the students as well as their parents/guardians to engage with us.
The process of integrated MBA programme admission is called Admission Interaction Process or AIP for short. The AIP consists of three parts.
Admission Interaction Process (AIP)
The following will be assessed during the PCI:
English communication skills – written & oral
Interest & hobbies
Degree of self-awareness
Reason for the choice of stream
Behavior and attitude
Applying for NIIT Integrated MBA Programme Admissions
1. ADMISSION MODES
NU offers admission for the Bachelors and Integrated Masters Programmes via two modes:
Early Admission Mode
Regular Admission Mode
EARLY ADMISSION MODE
NU offers Early Admissions to students appearing for their Class XII Board Examinations in March-April 2019 as also to those who have taken their Class XII Board examination not earlier than March 2017. The EAD process is particularly suitable for those who are clear about pursuing engineering or management studies or/and multidisciplinary curriculum leading to post-graduate career or those willing to set up their own start-up ventures after graduation. This is also beneficial to NU to spread out its admission process since it gives more time for in-depth interaction with the applicants which is a vital part of the NU selection process.
The applicants seeking admission in this mode can also apply for scholarship under the NU Scholar Search Programme. There are limited seats for which integrated MBA programme admission is being granted under the Early Admission Mode. The admission will be granted on a first come first served basis to only those applicants who meet all the admission criteria as defined for integrated MBA programme admission.
