IIFT 2023 Result: What Next? 

After the release of IIFT results in 2023, the institute will publish a merit list of applicants chosen for admission to its MBA-International Business programme. The merit list includes the names and roll numbers of applicants selected for the Essay Writing, Group Discussion, and Personal Interview of the IIFT admission process. 

Last year, 5000 students took the exam, and only 1508 made it to the Group Discussion, Personal Interview, and Essay Writing rounds.

Writing an IIFT Essay: During the 20-minute essay writing test, candidates receive a topic on which to write a brief essay. The exam divides the candidates into eight groups. Topics can range from business and economics to politics and society.

Group Discussion and Personal Interview After the IIFT Result

Group Discussions and Personal Interviews are two essential components of the IIFT 2023 selection process after the release of the IIFT 2023 result. Group discussions and personal interviews assess communication skills, confidence level, interaction skills, personality, and current affairs knowledge. Aside from the essay writing test, the candidate must go through two rounds before receiving an admission offer.

Group Discussion

As part of the IIFT, a group of applicants participates in a group discussion (GD) test that lasts 30 to 40 minutes. During the IIFT GD round, each candidate will have one minute to speak.

Personal Interview 

Applicants who pass the Group Discussion (GD) stage must proceed to the Personal Interview (PI). The IIFT expert panel will interview the shortlisted candidates before deciding on admissions at this stage. This personal interview evaluates a candidate's communication, analytical and problem-solving skills and abilities.

Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Delhi, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Lucknow, will conduct the IIFT's Essay Writing, GD(Group Discussion), and PI(Personal Interview) rounds in February or March 2023. The authorities may or may not conduct the GD or PI online. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, NTA has conducted an online PI round online for the last 2 years. The selected candidates get a letter outlining the schedule and dates for these rounds of the admission process at IIFT.
