IIM Lucknow to Conduct CAT 2017; Convener Prof. Neeraj Dwivedi

Common Admission Test (CAT) 2017 will be conducted by IIM Lucknow this year. Institute’s PGP Admission Chair Professor Neeraj Dwivedi who has also done his fellowship from IIM Lucknow, will be the convener this year. IIM-L will be filling in the shoes of IIM Bangalore which conducted the exam last year. Every year the decision of convening the CAT exam is taken in a meeting which is attended by the Directors of all the IIMs and other stakeholders. IIM Lucknow has been assigned the responsibility after a gap of seven years. The exam is expected to be conducted in November or December this year. 
CAT exam is a gateway to one of the 20 IIMs and other prestigious B-Schools such as SPJIMR, IMT, MDI, FORE School of Management etc. Last year almost 2.32 lakh students had registered for the exam.
CAT 2017 will be a computer-based test, with TCS being the testing partner since 2014. It is expected that IIM Lucknow will release the notification for CAT 2017 on or after July 30, 2017. The application process for the exam will begin in August first week and will be conducted in a month long window. 
Every IIM is known to bring some change or make additions in the test pattern and over all exam process. Last year, IIM Bangalore had not made any significant change in the exam pattern but did add Noida as an exam centre which was removed from the list of exam centres in 2014. 

Any changes in the CAT 2017 pattern will be clear once IIM Lucknow releases official notification about the exam this year. 

Professor Neeraj Dwivedi, convenor is a faculty at the Lucknow campus with Strategic Management as his Specialization.  He has also done his fellowship from IIM Lucknow, post his  M.Tech from IIT Kharagpur and B.Tech from GBPUAT Pantnagar.

Professor Neeraj teaches Strategic Management, Mergers and Acquisitions and Internationalization Strategies and while research areas have been Corporate Governance and M&A.

Campusutra wishes IIM Lucknow and Prof. Neeraj all the success in organising the 2017 CAT.
