Eligibility criteria pertaining to Admissions 2019

TSM uses CAT/MAT/CMAT/XAT to short list candidates for the two-year full time Post Graduate Programmes in Management. The IIMs/XLRI or any other agencies play no role either in the TSM admission process or in the actual conduct of TSM programmes. Selection will be, inter alia, based on CAT/MAT/XAT/CMAT taken in May 2018 or later, previous academic performance and the performance during the personal interview. If the candidate has taken more than one test, the candidate is required to furnish ALL their test scores. The best test score after moderation will be considered for evaluation.
