Overview of the JBIMS Admission Process

JBIMS has a multi-step admission process that students must complete to gain acceptance into the institute. Following the admission criteria, students must appear for the course-specific entrance exam and other rounds of selection (if applicable). We have provided a detailed step-by-step admission procedure below:

Step 1: Online Registration 

Every year, the JBIMS admission process begins in March. Eligible candidates should apply through the JBIMS online portal. The university considers only complete online applications for admission.

  2. Fill out the online application form. 
  3. Pay the application fee
  4. Submit the application form
  5. Take a printout of the application form for future reference.

Step 2: Rounds of Selection

The university shortlists candidates for the management programmes based on their entrance exam scores. JBIMS Mumbai offers MBA admission in two categories: Maharashtra state and All-India. As stated above, the MAH CET and CAT/CMAT/XAT scores determine the direct admission to JBIMS in the Maharashtra state and All India Category, respectively. Candidates who meet the predefined eligibility requirements for all other courses must go through the institute-specific selection process. 

Step 3: Admission Confirmation & Merit List
