    Re: Eligibility criteria for MAT exam after completing Diploma in Hotel Management

    The basic qualification required for the MAT exam is a graduation in any area of specialisation. The final year degree students can also attend the MAT entrance exam. Those who are waiting the final year result too can appear for this test. The exam is conducted four times each year. As you are a diploma holder, you cannot appear for the MAT exam. A diploma course is not considered equivalent to graduation. You can go for a degree in Hotel Management or any other area of your choice. After that, during the final appear for this MAT exam. You can check about the eligibility criteria by checking the official website of AIMA.

    A diploma course is never equivalent to a graduation course. The number of years of the diploma course is not considered as a factor in the same. Since for MAT graduation is a must you cannot apply for the same. You need to go in for a graduation. You can choose an area of your choice. You have options like going in for a Hotel Management course or Home Science. You have the option to take up the same part time. When you reach the final year you can appear for the exam. Start preparations atleast a year before the exam. You can visit the AIMA site for details.
