The Faculty of Management Studies

The Faculty of Management Studies focuses on management education more than just business management. The commitment is thought leadership with a deep understanding of business. The approach to pedagogy combines fieldwork, case studies and instrumented feedback with a strong emphasis on concepts and theory. The intent is to encourage intellectual curiosity and open minds to the adventure of ideas.

But much about the school is not just about what is taught with in its confines. FMS has the unique privilege to be part of one of the premier universities world – the University of Delhi – with some of the finest departments in Economics, Law, Sociology, Commerce and Operations Research. Our collaborative approach involves inputs from various departments that gives the benefit of a much wider view and deeper understanding. This is indicated by the success of our alumni who are in positions of leadership in industries & governments across the world. The network of more than 9000 alumni gives students unmatched access to information, mentors and careers.

It takes character and focus to champion the business environment for 40 consecutive years. MBA (FT), the flagship course at FMS, has achieved this by imbibing both these qualities in the management education imparted to its participants. This time-perfected course gives you two years to explore; to be bold, to be creative and to learn as much as you can. The first year introduces you to the essential models and tools needed to frame and analyze fundamental management issues that are essential for creation of thought leaders and change managers. In the second year, you decide on your professional development plans by reflecting on the first year learnings and summer internship experiences. This assessment is augmented by advisory sessions with faculty and corporates who share their eclectic experiences with you. The programme is located at the North Campus facility of FMS. You are required to complete 8 core or elective courses or a combination of both in every semester.
