To be considered for the Cohort of 2025, your evaluation will be based on the following criteria:
While 2-5 years of professional work experience is the ideal range, we are also open to considering candidates who are recent graduates and individuals with exceptional profiles.
We evaluate your educational background, including your co-curricular and leadership history. All applicants must also take the MUBAAT which is held on the weekend following the admissions deadline.
You may also include GRE, GMAT, GMAT Focus, and CAT scores as supplemental scores in your application.
As part of the MUBAAT evaluation, all candidates will be required to write an on-the-spot essay and provide two video essay responses.
You are an ideal Masters’ Union candidate if:
You have made the best use of the opportunities available to you.
We understand that we all come from very different contexts and backgrounds, and hence, we all had different opportunities & resources growing up. What matters is whether you made the most use of what was provided to you. Just having attended a top university is not enough - did you leverage that opportunity to the fullest is what matters. Similarly, having attended an ‘unbranded’ is not a disadvantage, if you were engaged, participative and left an impact there.
You are open to opposing viewpoints & new ideas
If you’re up for a good & healthy debate and are ready to consider/accept others’ point of views, you will be able to evolve much faster as a human being. You will also be able to make the most of your Masters’ Union experience.
You are humble and open to being coached
If you know what you don't know and are ready to learn to fill the gaps, you will be able to soak in more knowledge from your peers and masters.
You are curious to learn new things
If unanswered questions keep you up at night and if you feel the need to google any questions, thought or idea that enters your mind, you will be able to better make use of the information disseminated in a typical Masters’ Union classroom.
You are motivated to create impact
Masters’ Union will throw a lot of challenges at you and you will need to be motivated to work on them and collaborate with your peers. You cannot be holding your peers back due to a lack of motivation.
You exhibit strong leadership performance and potential
We know leadership is manifested through different forms - entrepreneurial ventures, captaining sports teams or volunteer projects, etc. Masters’ Union is looking for students who are driven to tackle challenging problems and leave the world a better place.

What is the typical student's profile at Masters' Union?
We don’t have any ‘typical’ student profile. The PGP-TBM welcomes students from across diverse geographical, academic and professional backgrounds. We encourage you to visit our cohort statistics page to get a better idea of the student profiles of graduates of the PGP TBM programme.
I’ve just completed/will be completing my undergraduate studies. Is Masters’ Union a right fit for me?
Work experience is not a mandatory requirement for admission. If you feel you have demonstrable leadership potential along with meritorious academic accomplishments, we encourage you to apply to Masters’ Union! Freshers from our second cohort have had unparalleled career trajectories with our average package for freshers at INR 24.44 Lakhs.
How many years of work experience do I need to be admitted?
While 2-5 years of work experience is ideal, it is not a mandatory requirement for admission. Applicants in their final year of graduation with demonstrable maturity and leadership experiences are encouraged to apply.
What's the minimum qualifying GPA?
Masters' Union does not have a minimum GPA requirement as the GPA system is not a global grading methodology. We focus on the courses you’ve taken, grades received and overall academic performance.
Is there an age limit for entry?
There is no age limit for entry. However, the programme is most suitable for those who are at an early stage in their careers. If you have more work experience, we encourage you to get in touch with the admissions team at email@example.com, who will evaluate your profile and advise you accordingly.
I have very little (or no) work experience. How will that impact my placement prospects at Masters' Union?
As a candidate with less than 2 years of experience, you will not be competing for jobs with more senior peers. Companies offer jobs relevant to different experience bands (0-2 years, 3-5 years, 5-8 years, 8+ years, etc). Organisation would focus more on your skill set as compared to your past experience.
However, for freshers from our second cohort, we witnessed an average salary of INR 24.44 Lakhs, with placement in prestigious companies.
I don't have a business background. Will this impact my chances for admission?
We value diversity at every level and welcome applications from a variety of professional and academic backgrounds, including the arts, law, medicine, military, non-profit, etc. As with all candidates, we will be looking for demonstrable leadership potential, and will consider this in conjunction with your professional experience and past performance, when assessing your application.
I don't have an undergraduate degree. Can I still be considered for admission?
Yes! While the vast majority of our participants have undergraduate and/or advanced degrees, this is not compulsory for admission. Candidates who do not hold an undergraduate degree, but who have an excellent career record, examination scores and leadership potential are also welcome to apply.
I am from a non-tech background. Is the Masters’ Union PGP TBM a right fit for me?
While the program might have the word ‘technology’ integrated within it, our programme is far more holistic in what it encompasses and allows for students from non-tech backgrounds to blend seamlessly in.
We ensure our graduates are equipped with the knowledge and practical skills to work on a diverse range of tools, from programming concepts to software design. As leaders at the intersection of business, technology, design, marketing and many more - we believe tech is only one out of the several toolkits you will need to acquire at Masters’ Union.
Students who choose to immerse themselves and have a more technology focussed emphasis for their journeys and curate their own academic journey through their elective choices.
Can I get a callback from Masters' Union?
Can I defer my admission offer from Masters' Union to the next year?
Currently, we are not offering the option to defer the admission offer. Those who cannot join the programme in the current year are advised to apply again for the next year.
Are all candidates interviewed?
Post the application and entrance examination (MUBAAT) stage, candidates are shortlisted for interviews. Only shortlisted candidates are invited for an interview.
If my application has been unsuccessful, may I reapply in the next round?
No, you cannot reapply in the next round. Unsuccessful applicants can reapply for the next intake, next year. Re-applicants are requested to submit a new online application unless otherwise indicated.
Please exercise your own judgement in deciding if you have made any significant changes in your new profile since your first application, that would make a significant difference to your admissions chances.
Are any of the rounds more or less competitive than others?
Each round is equally competitive. The acceptance ratio is the same for all rounds. Most importantly, you should dedicate enough time and thought to your application so that it accurately represents your strengths and talents.
However, if scholarships are a priority, we encourage you to apply in Round 1.
Can I get my profile evaluated?
Feel free to connect with the admissions team to understand your fitment with the programme. While you are welcome to send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org for a preliminary conversation, due to a large volume of requests, our responses to your requests might be delayed.
Does Masters Union have a cut-off for its entrance examination?
Masters’ Union follows a holistic evaluation approach for admissions and does not have a cut-off for any entrance examination. Our selection is based on a combination of your academic and professional experience, essays, entrance exam scores and interview performances.
All applicants are required to take the MUBAAT examination, conducted on the weekend after the admissions deadline. In addition, students can choose to submit their valid GMAT, GMAT Focus, GRE and CAT scores in the online application as well. We do not accept NMAT scores.
Does Masters’ Union accept GMAT Focus Edition?
Yes. We now accept the latest GMAT Focus Edition and it aligns with our admissions criteria.
Is the same reporting policy applicable to both GMAT and GMAT Focus Edition? Will this impact my application?
Yes, the same reporting policy applies to both the GMAT Focus Edition and standard GMAT. You will
report the scores of both versions of the GMAT in our application form. The choice of taking the
not have any negative impact on your application.
Note: The conversion table designed by GMAT, is to help you convert your GMAT Focus score to the equivalent standard GMAT score and vice versa. To convert your scores, locate your GMAT Focus score in the left column and find the corresponding standard GMAT score in the right column.
Can you give me more details about the MUBAAT examination?
The MUBAAT is an internal examination used to test your academic and professional fitment with the PGP-TBM programme.
All applicants applying for the PGP-TBM are required to take the MUBAAT examination. The cost of the MUBAAT examination is included in the application fees. The MUBAAT is conducted on the weekend following each admission deadline. Details regarding the timing and slot booking are provided on the completion of the application deadline.

We’re looking for clarity and consistency in your thoughts, a high level of critical thinking skills and how well you frame your responses.
Test Score Validity Policy
The MUBAAT scores will be valid only for the year in which the test was taken. The same goes for the CAT exam - we accept scores for the examinations conducted in the same academic year. You are free to submit GMAT/GMAT Focus/GRE scores as long as they are valid.
Application Submission Policy
If the applicant misses both the rounds of a particular intake, the application form and its entire contents will expire. At this point, the applicant will be required to complete a new application from scratch, for the next intake.
An application will only be evaluated once it is complete. If it is completed after the deadline, it will be reviewed for the next round or (in the case of last round applicants) the following intake.

The fees for the course, as mentioned on the website, does not include hostel fees. The full fee structure including the hostel is sent to all our admitted students along with their offer letter.

The following refund policy will be applicable to the programme fee:
The admission fee, also referred to as the token fee, is non-refundable.
Pre-Commencement - In case a student has to withdraw from the programme before the commencement, for either academic, personal, or administrative reasons, only 50% of the tuition and hostel fee will be refunded.

To illustrate, if the tuition fee amount payable for a candidate for our 8-term PGP-TBM were INR 8 Lakh, and a student chose to drop out in the fourth term, s/he will be eligible for a refund of INR 2 lakh.
No refund shall be made in case a student is expelled from the programme on disciplinary grounds.
