Red Building Of Dreams – Srishti, FMS Delhi
What makes my campus unique?
FMS, situated in the heart of North Campus of Delhi University, is one of the best business schools of India established in 1954. A campus famous for its rigorous admission process that ensures the incoming of best students from the country, FMS is also famous for its “return of investment”. A low fee structure provides opportunities to aspirants from humble backgrounds to dream big and gives its students freedom to aspire for their dream job instead of running after fat checks to repay their education loans. FMS faces lack of resources due to its low fee structure and that is what adds most to the learning of future managers, who, in future, have to make the most of the limited resources present with them and make a difference. It teaches them to value what they have and work hard to get what they aspire for. FMS aims to provide education in management with a single-minded focus on learning which is where its absolute grading comes into the picture. It reduces competition between students inside the campus and enhances cooperation and learning.
While FMS enjoy 100% placements in the top companies in India due to its small batch size, the thing that differentiates it from other B-schools is the option of lateral placements. Through lateral placements, a student can opt out of placements for 2 years and focus on entrepreneurship or family business and can sit in placements if it doesn’t work out. This freedom encourages ambitious people to give their dream of changing the world, a chance.
A memorable classroom experience in my B-school
The most memorable class experience in FMS was on the last day of our induction into the system. During induction, we were going through a tough time handling all the assignments, classes, and due to inefficiency and inability of manage time well, we had very less sleep trying to meet deadlines. So, on that night, we got a mail saying a student from our batch has complained about seniors abusing us and henceforth, our general secretary and finance secretary has been suspended and a senior has been terminated from the institute. The news came as a shock to us as while we felt at times that our seniors were being a little harsh with us, we knew that it was to train us to be able to the upcoming times of a hectic life a manager is subjected to. The seniors came to us and scolded us; they sounded genuinely upset about the whole thing and left class in disappointment. The whole batch of ours felt bad about it and started thinking about how we can help in reverting the punishment given to our seniors. Suddenly a welcome video started playing on the projector and seniors came running inside the classroom, shouting welcome to the family. I can’t forget the thrill I felt at that time and the relief that it was just a prank played by our seniors on us and that was the moment when I felt that I didn’t just get admitted to the institution, I felt I’m now a part of FMS.
