Post Graduate Diploma in Business Analytics – PGDBA

Post Graduate Diploma in Business Analytics – PGDBA

Post Graduate Diploma in Business Analytics (PGDBA) is a course that is jointly offered by Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), IIT Kharagpur and IIM Calcutta. It is a 2 year residential program. Admission to this program is done through a separated PGDBA entrance exam. You also need to appear for a personal interview after the written exam.

This entrance exam is a bit different than other MBA entrance exams. The paper is divided into four sections with a total of 50 problems. The four components are Verbal Ability, Quantitative Aptitude, Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning. The number of questions in each section is also different. Also, the difficulty level of PGDBA tends to be on the lower side than CAT and other tests. PGDBA is generally a pen and paper based exam.

Section Number of questions Duration
Verbal Ability 15 Total time Of 3 hours  
Quantitative aptitude 25
Logical Reasoning 5
Data Interpretation 5
Total 50

However, relatively easier paper does not translate to guaranteed selection. The number of seats is fixed and the number of candidates in increasing every year. You should take PGDBA as serious as any other exam if you want to get an excellent score.

There is no official cut-off score for this exam, although it can be expected to lie in the range of 100 to 105. Your score in the written exam along with your PI score will determine the total score. The detailed weightage is given below.

Criteria Weights
Written test score 40
PI Score 40
Class 10th marks 7
Class 12th marks 7
Work experience 6
Total 100
