NEW DELHI: The Grad­u­ate Man­age­ment Ad­mis­sion Coun­cil (GMAC) re­cently launched the In­dia edi­tion of Ad­mis­sions In­sti­tute , a global event that was first launched in the US and Europe over a decade ago.

The ad­mis­sions in­sti­tute is an in­ten­sive pro­gramme con­ducted for ad­mis­sion team mem­bers of B-schools to help them learn about nu­ances of ad­mis­sions as well as en­gage with their peers on a sin­gle plat­form.

How­ever, since the cost of travel to the US was an im­ped­i­ment, GMAC cre­ated the Ad­mis­sion In­sti­tute in In­dia, the first edi­tion of which was co-hosted by In­dian School of Busi­ness, Hy­der­abad in De­cem­ber 2017.

B-schools in at­ten­dance in­cluded ISB, In­dian In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment In­dore, KJ So­maiya In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment Stud­ies and Re­search, IMT Ghazi­abad, IMI Delhi, MISB Boc­coni, Uni­ver­sal Busi­ness School and ISBR Ban­ga­lore.

“A small num­ber of schools were in­vited this year for the pilot edi­tion though we plan on a larger batch from next year,” said Gau­rav Sri­vas­tava, re­gional di­rec­tor, South Asia, GMAC.
