Anonymous MBA / PGDM [Marketing ]  Student

OVERVIEW    
4/5

FMS has been consistently ranked amongst the Top 5 B-Schools in the country. Set up in 1954, it was one of the first few colleges to offer an MBA degree. That legacy combined with the efforts of brilliant teachers and industry relations have made FMS' Alumni Network one of the best in India. FMS stands out on multiple aspects: - Location: Delhi, Part of Delhi University, Great Atmosphere and Living Experience, Access to DU Facilities, Brilliant Exposure due to being in Delhi - Fees: INR 20,000 for the whole MBA as compared to 15 Lakh+ at IIMs, even those IIMs which stand below FMS in rankings. This factor becomes extremely important in shaping up your lifestyle for 3-5 years after MBA as students from other colleges pay up to 30% of their salary as EMI for their loan. - Placements: At such a fees, FMS has delivered an average salary package of INR 20 Lakh+ per annum. In some cases, it is as high as almost 70 lakhs (domestic) and 1 crore (international) per annum. It rarely goes below 10-12 lakhs. All companies, irrespective of salary, are top-notch. All placement records in the official report are totally credible (from experience). - Alum Network: FMS alums occupy some of the top positions in leading companies in the country which acts as a catalyst for a lot of things including guest lectures, placements and even mentorship/help after MBA throughout life.

PLACEMENTS

Placements and Alumni Network are the two top strengths of FMS. The college sees some of the best names in the industry for all streams like Marketing, Finance, Consulting etc. The salaries for most visiting companies are in the same bracket as IIM A/B/C. For a batch of around 220, generally 80+ companies visit the campus.

200+ Guest Lectures and Placement Talks every year by the Top Names in India and across the world. 2 Month compulsory summer internship at some of the top companies.

Salary Package:   17 - 19 Lakhs

FACULTY    
4/5

Being a Marketing Major, Prof. Harsh Verma is one of the most respected Marketing Professors not only in FMS but across the country. He has several important research publications and award winning books to his name.

ADMISSION    
Admission Difficulty: Hard

Admission Criteria:My CAT Score was 99.8. I had other options which I converted like IIM Kozhikode, MDI Gurgaon, new IIMs, NMIMS etc.. FMS was an obvious choice because it was the only college I converted out of the Top 6 cluster (IIM ABCL, XL, FMS). I did not get a call from IIM A, B and L because of my Grad Percentage being in 60s, and I didn't appear for XAT (XLRI).

CAMPUS LIFE    

I have been a part of MarkSoc, The Marketing Society at FMS for 2 years. FMS is known as the Marketing Campus of the Country, and MarkSoc also has some role to play in that tag. The society arranges regular corporate interactions, content preparation sessions, interview prep, national level competitions and marketing case challenges etc. MarkSoc's events are some of the most awaited marketing events across top b-schools. Other societies are also equally active and popular like ConClub (Consulting Society), FinSoc (Finance Society), CulSoc (Cultural Society) and many more.

Ameya Kulkarni MBA / PGDM  Student

OVERVIEW    
4/5

FMS is not your average MBA college. Most MBA institutes in India have a culture that is designed to push the students till they crack and perform, whether the students want to or not. This just creates conformists and not reformists. At FMS, we believe that what students need is choice, students have to crave out their own path, we just hold the torch.

PLACEMENTS    
4/5

FMS is considered as the Marketing Campus of India. Our Summer internships are at par with the IIMs, and our students have a stellar track record of converting these internships into PPOs. As for the Placements, FMS is in the Top 5 MBA institutes of India for a reason. To play in the Big Leagues, you have to be a Big League Player. FMS is no less as compared to any IIM, and we have a placement record to prove it.

ADMISSION    
Admission Difficulty: Hard

Admission Criteria:I scored a 99.48 percentile in the CAT'14. I choose this college because this is primarily a student run campus, which implies that the onus of your success is completely on you. I respect and follow this ideology, and hence FMS was a natural choice for me.
