FLAME Pune PGDM Admission 2018 – FLAME University, Pune released the application for admission to post graduate programme. Admissions to FLAME University occur in four distinct cycles. If you make an early decision to apply to FLAME, you can participate in the first cycle. Participating early in the admission process gives you a first mover advantage. Your decision to apply early is not binding on you in case you receive an offer of admission from FLAME. However, selected students will have to make a decision about their offer before the stated deadlines in their offer letter. The second cycle is a campus round, where we conduct our assessment process during a dedicated weekend in January on FLAME’s campus in Pune. You may also choose our regular application cycles (third and fourth cycle), which will take place in selected cities across India, like the early decision cycle.

  • Personality Profiling

We follow a sliding principle for selection, where we shortlist candidates based on their overall performance on all the parameters enlisted above.

Obviously, the higher the test score, the better your chances of getting an offer letter. Your chances of selection are brighter if you have a strong academic record, well-articulated SOP, and extracurricular/ professional achievements.

FLAME University’s selection process is designed to give each applicant a fair chance of admission. FLAME tries to ensure that bright well-rounded individuals get admitted to its programs.

An outstanding performance in the selection process may make you eligible for scholarships. (Please refer to the section on ‘Scholarships’ for details).
