You need a top score and you have to be at your best to clear the GD & PI round which are as important. Faculty of Management Studies is at par with IIMs in many aspects and placements certainly is one of them. The college always ranks in top 10 B-Schools of the country and as a proud alumnus of FMS, I am glad that the college has maintained the rankings for decades now. If you look at ROI which is what we were taught as Finance students, the ROI of FMS is far better than any. The total fees during our time was 1.6 lakhs for 2 years. The average placements were 9 lakhs during our time. The numbers are here and one can Google it if they doubt. FMS campus is a major drawback as there are facilities but not the modern-day feel that most of the colleges have these days. Even the colleges that are 40-50 years old have rebuilt their infrastructure but FMS was last renovated in 2008 and it’s time that the college redesign some of its labs and include some missing features. Overall FMS Delhi is a great package because placements, exposure, and all was in abundance at the college.
Luckily my home was not far from the college because students who stayed at the hostel or at far-off places have left some of their clothes at my place. After all, traveling for over an hour a day is not possible for FMS students. 275 was the batch size and you can ask any whether they had time for themselves during those 2 years. I missed 2 family weddings then and I am sure others must have gone through that. Assignments would never end and the faculty had this knack of picking flaws out in every project that one does.
The faculty were funny but made us tough. If one can please them at the campus then they can please any bosses across the globe because even in the work that deserved 10 on 10, they will find a way to reduce numbers. Getting their appreciation was the biggest challenge and that made all the students push to the limits they can. The faculty was one of the best and some were from the best global business schools. They brought newness but still the facilities I would say were still poor.
The hard work and the industrial projects that an FMS student does are much more than any B Schools. Our caliber was already known to the companies that came for recruitment. FMCG was never my preferred sector but Nestle, HUL, ITC, Emami made a group as Patanjali started its entry just then. Everybody needed sharp brains at the organization as the competition got tougher. Banks came with less demand and they rather went for the students who did Executive MBA as some of them had working experience at the bank. Nonetheless, the placements were quality as all the quality companies visited the campus and a package of 10 Lakhs was more than I wished for.
The college doesn't have a hostel inside the campus but has seats at the University hostel that are at South Campus. It’s really unfortunate where all the B-Schools have a residential program, FMS didn’t feel it that way. A hostel is a must for MBA colleges to save time and make sure that students are available at any point in time. At FMS, sometimes the lectures went on till 9 pm, and traveling back was such a pain that some of my friends stayed at my place on such days.
A small campus with a small garden and a nice building. The building is good and the classrooms are air-conditioned. The MBA classes were on the 1st floor and the staircase will give you the feel of a palace as they were designed majestically. The backside of the college also has a garden but the building paint has come off and looks so old. The library was also not that big but since the student strength was less it was manageable. The auditorium had 300 seats of high quality and interacting with guests during guest lectures at the auditorium felt like we are at some business conclave. The canteen was of no use and I used to have my tea and snacks outside the college where there are many nice tea stalls and restaurants. The infrastructure of FMS needs a serious look because they lack many facilities and not having them is not an excuse.
FMS have the best of the students and therefore the student interactions were mostly logical. The difference of opinion was evident as when you some of the smartest brains these things tend to happen. However, this has made some of the best speakers and debaters. FMS students can be found in all the leading Fortune 500 companies and that is because of the kind of quality that FMS students provide. FMS was a crash course to survive the toughest conditions and all the students are made so tough that we can survive any situation. Surviving at a certain level in corporate need qualities like patience and perseverance and students of FMS have them both in abundance.

There are 2 ways to look at FMS Delhi. They take a very small batch of students so to get in here is quite tough. If you look at the other way round, once you are at FMS you will have more opportunities as the competition is less. I had many nostalgic moments at FMS as I won various competitions but lost too many. I also failed in many projects but I also aced quite a few. I fell in love with most of the professors but I also disliked some, I was also selected by various companies but then I was... Read Full Review
