Consortium of Management Education (COME), a collaboration of 52 business schools in India, mostly from Mumbai and Pune, has created a common platform for holding Centralised Admission Process (CAP) for its member institutes.

The online common selection process for admission into various PG diploma courses on business management will be conducted in Hyderabad on June 14 and 15.

The admission process includes a group discussion and personal interview, which will be conducted at various locations such as Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Hyderabad, New Delhi, Bangalore and Bhubaneswar.

“The 52-member institutes in the consortium is offering about 36 verticals, such as bio-technology, agriculture, pharmaceutical, banking and insurance business management,” Dr Pradeep Bawadekar, a member of the consortium, told newspersons here on Wednesday.

He said the consortium, which invites only AICTE-approved institutes, was willing to take on board institutes from other States as members. The consortium is offering a total of 10,000 seats across its member institutes.

There is an estimated 550 AICTE-approved institutions with a total offering of 50,000 seats.

On the placement rate, Dr Bawadekar said the average track record across the member institutes was between 85 per cent and 90 per cent placement.
