BIMTECH Greater Noida: Admission Eligibility

  1. BIMTECH eligibility criteria require that the candidate must hold a bachelor's degree of minimum 3 years duration, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA
  2. One of the most important points in BIMTECH Admission Eligibility criteria is that apart from a recognized graduate degree, the candidate should be registered for CAT 2018/XAT 2019 or GMAT 2018-19 and must score well to become eligible for admission.
  3. CMAT 2019 and MAT 2018-19 scores are also accepted for admission to PGDM (Retail Management) and PGDM (Insurance Business Management) programs
