IIMs Bothered With B-Schools Boycotting CAT 2011

New Delhi: The Common Admission Test (CAT) has again become a cause of concern for the Indian Institute of Management (IIMs), as many b-schools are boycotting CAT 2011.
 
As per sources, almost 60 b-schools have chosen to not register for CAT 2011. The IIMs are now keen to assess the reason behind such a decision. This year, 145 business schools (excluding 13 IIMs) will consider CAT 2011 score for admitting students.
 
Even though there is not much difference in the total number institutes participating this year, when compared to last year. However, the cause of concern for the organizers of this test is that 58 institutes, which were registered with CAT last year, have dropped out.
 
According to Jankiraman Moorthy, CAT 2011 convenor and faculty member of IIM-Calcutta, institutes leaving or joining CAT is nothing unusual. He said that though the core group of institutes is still with CAT. However, he added that they have noticed that a large number of institutes are missing are from last year's list.
 
Moreover, some of the renowned bschools which have dropped out are: Fostima Business School (New Delhi), Institute of Management and Development (Delhi), J.K. Padampat Singhania Institute of Management and Technology (Gurgaon).
