Survival of the fittest
The Faculty of Management Studies (FMS), University of Delhi made a modest beginning with a three year part-time Post graduate management programme in Business Administration for senior and middle level executives in 1954. The past decades have witnessed a significant growth in the nature and number of programmes offered at the FMS. FMS has exchange programmes and collaborative arrangements with leading industrial and business houses, management institutions and professional associations in India and overseas. It is the founder member of the Association of Management Development Institutions in South Asia (AMDISA) and is working towards regional cooperation in management education and development in the spirit of SAARC. It gets applicants of over 70000 for admissions each year, of which a mere number of 200 odd applicants get through.
The Faculty of Management Studies has had a legacy of securing stellar placements, both in terms of the compensation and the wide variety of profiles on offer. This year, FMS has secured 212 offers for a batch where 205 students participated in the selection process, ensuring 100% placements. 37 first-time recruiters visited the campus this season. The wide variety of profiles offered across domains is a reflection of the diversity of the student pool. This variety ensures that students have ample opportunity to pursue their careers in a domain and organization of their choice and contribute to nation building in several ways.
