Indian business schools decry new rule on admissions

February 14, 2011

India's top private business schools plan to challenge a new rule they claim limits their autonomy. The rule effectively prohibits the schools from conducting their own admissions tests and holding their own interviews with prospective students -- responsibilities to be taken over by Indian states. The business schools have petitioned for a court order to stop the rule from taking effect. Without such an order, the schools say they would not accept students who go through the state-run admissions process. The Chronicle of Higher Education (free access)
