Hi Abhishek, GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is a national level test for admission to M.Tech/ Ph.D. and other Government Scholarships/Assistantships in the field of engineering and technology. So you can not fill this exam for MBA. But you can apply for MBA by filling the CAT, XAT, CMAT, GMAT entrance exam.
