ADMISSIONS From the Desk of Chairman
T. A. Pai Management Institute (TAPMI), Manipal is a well established (since 1984), autonomous, highly ranked and leading private B-School in India. In April 2012, TAPMI was globally accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (www.aacsb.edu).
TAPMI welcomes you to visit the pages on admissions for our Flagship program – Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) as well as PGDM-Healthcare Management (HCM) and make your choice to apply for the 2013-15 Program(s).
Both the programmes are approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and are recognized as equivalent to MBA by Association of Indian Universities (AIU) for pursuing Doctoral programs (Ph.D.) within India and across the globe. The Admissions Handbook contains details of the curriculum and specializations that are offered and the prospects of placement.
Please note that an applicant for PGDM has an option of writing either CAT-2012 or XAT-2013 as the admission test. Those who are attempting GMAT also have the option of applying. TAPMI obtained necessary approvals of AICTE to admit a few NRI candidates and Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs) as well. Eligibility criteria for these candidates are given separately in the Handbook for Admissions - 2013 and in our website. Similarly, scores obtained in MAT exam held by AIMA in September and December 2012 are also considered for the PGDM-Healthcare program besides the above three tests.
