Candidates are shortlisted according to the marks scored and then progress to the next stage, i.e. group discussion. In group discussion, students have to talk about a given subject and express their opinion. After this, personal interview is conducted and after passing in all the three stages, candidates get a call.

Eligibility criteria

They have the knowledge about management and how to handle issues related to work and corporations.
