The admissions to the dual degree programme (MBA Decision Science and Analytics and MS Business Analytics and Information Management from Purdue University) are also conducted through NMAT.”In the past we have also accepted GMAT scores and that is communicated to the students separately.A decision is taken every year on this so the criteria might differ every year.
Students admitted for this course are here for the two yearsThe first complete year consists of three trimesters and approximately another month where they take a curriculum of MBA with us and then for the next year they are at Purdue if they meet their criteria.They are there for the next two trimesters where they pursue MS in analytics,” Dr.Sikdar said.
