It is unfortunate that FMS Delhi has decided to not share placement data with us from this year. One of their representatives said that the students had 'taken an unanimous decision to not have a relationship with InsideIIM.com'. Despite repeated calls and emails we did not hear from them.
The context to this decision is that FMS students feel that the Editorial team at InsideIIM is biased against them in favour of IIM L and XLRI. After we published the FMS final placement report this year, some students of FMS Delhi wrote to us with exact details of unplaced students in an excel sheet. FMS Placement and Media cells had sent us the report claiming placements had been completed and no information on sign-outs/unplaced students was given. We just made the exact figure public without disclosing the names of students or making the excel sheet public. You can follow the exact updates from 17th May to 19th May 2013 here. This did not go down to well with them. They had expressed displeasure earlier in Nov 2012 when according to them we had praised IIM L in a biased manner. On another earlier occasion we received a call from a placement committee member when we praised ISB for being able to attract companies in a short span of existence of about 12 years here and we didn't write as much about FMS according to him.
If you go through any of the earlier FMS reports or other research reports, there is no case where we have written anything negative about FMS. As always we only focus on positive aspects of a recruitment season at any campus which shares data with us. We hope FMS revisits its position in the future on this.
The report below has unverified data. It has been taken from mainstream media, FMS website and a few confirmations have been made through our alumni network.
Impressive number given the batch size. Also, relatively diverse. One of the few other campuses apart from IIM ABC where there are a few front-end ibanking/markets opportunities.
One of the lines in the report on their website says, "Deutsche Bank, TVS Capital Funds, Magma Fincorp, Microgram also opened roles across profiles for FMS". It is slightly ambiguous and we request readers to confirm with friends on campus if offers were made.
TAS made 8 offers which is a very impressive number.
One of the best campuses in India for FMCG opportunities. Almost everyone seems to be at FMS barring P&G. If your dream is to make a career in FMCG and you have an admit from FMS, it may be a great proposition given the low fees. It is as good as anywhere else in the country.
This report could be inaccurate as it is unverified. Please support this report with some more primary research by speaking to a few students.
