placement report (2)   The Corporate Relations & Placements team at FMS suggests certain pointers to placement cells at undergrad colleges:

  1. Leveraging Alumni Base

All the colleges in Delhi University have a very strong alumni base. FMS, with its 61 year old history, has 200+ CXOs in the industry. By having an active Alumni Relations Society, we are able to help the alumni continue to connect with their alma mater, and they in turn, end up hiring from the vast talent pool of the college.
  1. Multiple Touch Points with Companies

Rather than just having companies over for recruitment activities, we involve them more by having Guest Lectures by Senior Professionals, and Workshops and Competitions for the students. This helps the students to get more acquainted with the company, and the company is also able to gauge the talent pool in multiple ways, before making a decision to come down for placements.
  1. Focused Placement Preparation

We have a world class faculty that makes sure that they cover all aspects of academics leading to Placements. Apart from this, we have content societies for every domain (Marketing, Finance, HR, etc.) which are completely student run. Their purpose is two-fold; they act both as an interest group and a preparation medium, focused mostly on essential knowledge for placements. This helps in reinforcing the students’ concepts and hence maximizes the number that a company hires from our campus.   Inputs from the Media Relations Cell and Corporate Relations & Placements, FMS.

Entrepreneurship Summit 2016 conducted by Entrepreneurship Cell, FMS Delhi, presented by Unitus Seed Fund in association with Jaarvis Accelerator kick-started with its flagship event “International Entrepreneurship Challenge” on 13th February 2016.

The panelists comprising of investors as Unitus Seed Fund and Jaarvis Accelerator, VCs and experts gave the finalists a good chance to not just participate in a B-Plan competition but to also pitch for funding to make their idea come alive. The winning team “Bluedrop” proposed the idea of an inexpensive durable water filter that can meet the requirements of rural India sustainably. 

 Responsible Entrepreneur, a Social entrepreneurship competition launched in association with Vihaan, social service cell of FMS, focused on B-Plans that would leave a social impact on society with a financially sustainable model. The finalists in this competition proposed business solutions to ubiquitous issues like sanitation, recycling, etc. Finally, the Frugal Innovators competition challenged entrepreneurs to come up with innovative ideas restricted to a meager budget of Rs. 20,000. Team Peco Labs, which proposed profitable Sugarcane farming, won the Responsible Entrepreneur competition whereas Team Nimori which proposed a Smart Pillbox was declared winner of Frugal Innovators. Start-up fair was also hosted as part of the E-Summit where start-ups setup stalls and were given an opportunity to showcase their ideas to students and investors and take feedback on the same.

“Acquire customers cheaply, give them magic moments and repeat those moments: it’s a linear process” said Ankit Singh founder MyPoolin. MyPoolin recently won the $250,000 Qualcomm Ventures’ QPrize. The talks reflected the deep insights that the start-up founders had gained through their experience- “The product is the message,” the emphasis was resonated by Vinay Kumar as he explained Artificial Intelligence; “AI is more than Google now and Siri. It is your doctor, financial advisor and more.” The day concluded with the FMS Entrepreneur Award presented by The FMS Forum to joint winners Mr.Ankit Singh, Co-Founder, Mypoolin and the team of Mr Somak Ghosh and Ms. Aditi Gupta, co-founders, Contrarian Capital.
