FORE School Invites Applications for PGDM and PGDM-IBM for 2016 Batch


FORE School of Management, the Delhi based premium Management School, has announced the applications for the admissions in Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) for the upcoming 2016-18 session.

For the past three decades FORE has successfully created a niche in the management education and is consistently ranked among the top most B Schools of the country including CRISIL with a rating of A***,  the highest for educational institute providing post graduate studies. Recently, FORE was recognized by SkillTree Great Place to Study, at The House of Commons, London.

With CAT score being apparently the primary benchmark for selection, debate gaining momentum into the challenges faced by the selection committees are issues like ‘managerial skill sets’ which are essential qualities recruiters look into during campus placements.  To provide opportunity to those who have a lower CAT score but potentially prove to be a result oriented management professional and in order to make it more open for the students, the CAT score cut-off has been brought down at FORE and the selection process is designed to select potentially bright candidates who can be better managers and future business leaders.

An international module is included in the course to familiarize the students with global policies and practices. The curriculum focuses on creating employment & excellence in profession through various development modules.

The admission policy framework of FORE encourage diversity. Present batch is highly diverse in terms of gender (34% female students), academic background, and work experience. Unlike some IIMs, FORE doesn’t offer incentives based on gender but in order to encourage cultural diversity, a special weightage of 5% (over and above 100%) is offered to students from selective states.
