Direct MBA Admission without Entrance Exam Scores is offered by many MBA Colleges particularly Private Universities. However, it is not possible to get direct admission in MBA in IIMs or in top 10 MBA colleges like XLRI, SPJIMR or MDI without entrance exam nor is there any facility of direct MBA admission in best college with low fees like FMS, JBIMS, SIMSREE, PUMBA among others. So, don’t be misguided by anyone promising such admissions in Top B-schools!

As such more opportunities with direct MBA admission without entrance exam and without the GD/WAT process have come up for the 2020-22 batch.
