Shailendra Raj Mehta, president and director of MICA said, "MICA is recognized as the most gender-diverse B-school in the country with a gender ratio of 50:50 at most times. Admissions at MICA are merit-based and transparent. We take pride in our uniquely designed entrance test, MICAT, which tests analytical and creative skills, attracting more female students without any preference or quota."
Ruchi Tewari and Taral Pathak, co-chairs of admissions at MICA, said, “With every passing year, students who aspire to get into MICA are academically more sound and interestingly more sensitive too. They express a high sense of compassion for social and ecological issues and have tried creative ways to solve them. This year, several of them have been a part of the start-up eco-system, where they have either had their own start-ups or worked in start-ups. We are sure that the interplay of diversity in all facets especially work experience will offer a rich learning experience.”
