The Red Building Of Dreams – Netraja Patil, FMS Delhi
The batch strength of FMS is less as compared to other b-schools but the unique feature here is they all are bound by one name “Red building of dreams” .People often say that we don’t have a residential campus which is necessary for a b-school but lesser did they know that Kamla Nagar is no less than a residential campus for us. We have seniors who manage their internships as well as college to help us with the induction process. FMS has the largest alumni base. Guidance of those alums and seniors is best source of knowledge one can ever have. Everyone generally creeps about campus not having enough facilities, but that scarcity of resources makes my campus unique. It brings people more closer. When we the batch of 2020 entered the college, The course started with the Yoga session, we recited our prayer with pride at the inaugural ceremony, Thought of the day is on the reception daily, how often does this happen in the b-school. When we were being addressed by the dean first time, she didn’t welcome us to FMS; she welcomed us into the family. Senior’s supports and faculty’s guidance inspires us to work hard and own the world. The thing that this is not just a campus, it’s a family, makes it unique.
A Memorable classroom experience in the B-School
FMS has a fantastic induction program. So the most memorable experience was of one the tasks of MSA Society. We were divided into various groups and we were told to bet on the particular orders. It was a fun event with lots of learning. We got to know a lot about logistics and costs involved into the supply chain. And the betting thing had developed a sense of healthy competition among us. So it was fun, informative and hence memorable.
