Counted as one of the prominent education bodies in India, Baba Farid Vidyak Society, which was founded under the visionary patronage of prominent educationists, has been in the forefront of education since 1993. It was like a dream come true for many MBA aspirants residing in Punjab's Malwa region where Baba Farid Vidyak Society decided to initiate Baba Farid College of Management & Technology (BFCMT). Managed and led by eminent educationist Dr. Gurmeet Singh Dhaliwal, the institute since its establishment in 2008 has successfully fulfilled the demand of capable management students in the industry and made a niche place for itself in a very short span of time. The quality education offered at an affordable fee at the BFCMT has emerged as a blessing for the students who are determined to rule the business world by demonstrating their proficiency.
A center of excellence for management education, BFCMT takes complete responsibility of placing its students in reputed organizations across the country. "The process of grooming the students starts from an early stage. Soon after they enter the campus, our highly qualified and certified trainers look after their progress," shares Dr. Gurmeet Singh Dhaliwal, Chairman, BFCMT. Along with regular classes, the students are indulged in special communication skills, soft skills and compulsory development sessions ensuring their rounded growth. Addressing the promise of 100 percent placement assistance, BFGI (Baba Farid Group of Institutions) till date has accomplished a landmark of 9000+ placements in 650+ companies coupled with conducting numerous mega job fairs.

After thorough training and guidance at BFCMT, the students become the most employable management candidates and thus placed in leading organizations such as Jaro education, ITC, AIM India, Yes Bank, HDFC Bank, Axis Bank, IndusInd Bank, Liberty, Amul, The Princeton Review and so on. "Each student pursues his/her degree with a motive, whether it is grabbing a job or learning entrepreneurial skills. And, we at BFCMT are accountable to focus on both," claims Dr. Dhaliwal. The institute boasts of Industry Interactive Entrepreneurship Cell (IIEC), which takes necessary initiatives like organizing panels, lectures, and breakfasts with entrepreneurs, networking events, visits to a start-up incubator, invite speakers and so on. Recent speakers include Amit Mishra (Mentor, Govt. Startup Advisor, New Delhi), Vikas Mittal (AGM NABARD) and R.D Singla (Sr. Manager PNB), just to name a few.
Dr. Dhaliwal pinpoints, "Our students, such as Mr. Harpreet Singh who is operating his own food joint at two locations at BFGI Campus & Bathinda city and Mr. Rahul Kalra, the Super stockiest of Dubai based energy drink produced by Dragon across India, are testaments of the relentless efforts we put into our students."
Matchless Placement Record
Offering a full-time two-year MBA course in four fields of specialization viz. marketing, retail, human resource and finance, the institute renders a good balance of theoretical and practical training to the students. The team of efficient and experienced teachers at BFCMT uses innovative teaching methodologies in the classrooms along with motivating the students for regular industry visits and taking up industry-based live projects in every semester, which is a compulsory part of the curriculum. Affiliated with Punjabi University, the institute believes in continuous evaluation of the students through written test followed by Group discussions and Personal interviews, which are done by a special panel including Industry and Academia Experts.
The students of BFCMT also benefited from the unique Stipend based internship projects, which fill the gap between theoretical and practical knowledge by introducing them to the realm of the corporate environment. "We host Global internship opportunities in more than 100 Countries through AIESEC which enables the students in cross-cultural learning. Furthermore, the first-rate industry relations we have maintained assist the students in getting job-ready from day one," mentions Dr. Dhaliwal. BFGI have collaborated with foundations like FICCI, ASSOCHAM, Ludhiana Management Association, Ph.D. Chamber of commerce & industry, Indo Canada Business Council, All India Management Association, Confederation of Indian Industry, NASSCOM and the list hardly gets an end.
On the other side, Research is kept on the priority list of the institute, where students and the faculty members are encouraged to participate in diverse research-related activities, Conferences & seminars. "With the motto of keeping the teachers updated, we give them funds for conducting research," claims Dr. Dhaliwal. Taking a step towards the mission of affordable education, Baba Farid Group of Institutions is appreciably easing the fee burden of students by conferring them scholarship worth Rs. 3 crores based on academics, sports, cultural, economically weaker and so on. The institute also provides free of cost Aptitude sessions/competitive classes for those students who strive for Government Jobs.
