About The Business Admissions Test (BAT)

The BAT has been developed as an admissions assessment test for business education programmes. It is designed to gauge test takers’ business acumen and analytical thinking through real-world application based problems. It is mandatory for PGP MFAB applicants to appear for BAT.
What is BAT?
The BAT is currently divided into 2 modules:
Module 1- Multiple Choice Questions: (4 sections)
MCQ section consists of questions to elicit the candidate’s approach to problem solving, communication, numerical and factual data management, and logical thinking.
Module 2: Business Case Study
This section will include a Business Case and tests the candidate’s business acumen and maturity with a realistic business scenario. The section is crafted to determine whether the candidate has had exposure to several business cycles and to general management decision making.
