CAT     Fpm 2011
FPM is recognized by UGC to be equivalent to PHD, not only because a FPM has to write a thesis, but because the standard is equivalent (or perhaps better) than any PhD program(in management) possible in India.

A FPM cannot use 'Dr.' because he is not a PhD. In India, 'PhD' degree can be given by universities only and not by institutions. IITs are recognized as deemed university by UGC, but not IIMs. So IIT can give PhD, but not IIM.

"By the way, a quick glance at the faculty profiles of the IIMs reveals that majority of their faculties are PhDs from State Universities and very few have IIT or IIM background. This is also true of the permanent faculty of ISB.

When it comes to faculty recruitment, universities look at your thesis and publications first and then your university/institution.

It can very well be the case that a person may not have any good work or research papers during the course of his FPM while another person from a lesser known university may have international publications as well as a solid thesis.

Needless to say, the employability of the latter exceeds that of the former even if he is an IIM product."


whr can v fin ths info tht fpm is recgnzd as eqvlnt 2 phd as per UGC.??i doubt!!clarifications pls!

heyyyy guys n dolls...i m sitting in the lab right now. got an accomodation . FLAT at my home mount view apartments. 2bhk. shared among four. my section is 4 ....people pls come out with ur info ..sections,,,,addresses .... phone numbers ...
i m getting back to my place tomorrow ....will b back in june then ,,,,i have my final sen exams.c'mmon people chip in .

hey panks ...ur point is quite right there....but i think there s valid point in umpire's thinking also.
umpire ...see ,,,, ICFAI is nt a govt funded organisation....and it has a lot in the names of publications(cant say bout IILM / AMITY) .... the written matter it provides and its quality is the best among all the institutes i suppose. secondly ....the number of faculty members is also higher in IBS ...thats quite obvious as it has a larger batch size. And i told bunny also that the batch size doesnt matter till we all are given a fair chance to prove ourselves and sit in an open competition for placements,,,,, the other 799 people are not stopping me ffrom sitting in the competition .... the higher the competition the higher the quality u ll get ...isnt it??(well i think this way).
thirdly ...IBS takes keen interest in the overall personality developement and not just teaching business education. It has special and compulsory classes on soft skills .... IT ...etc ...moreover the cultural activities take place round the year for which the students dont pay extra.
all the study material is provided by the college itself and u have not to worry bout any other book.
he he he lagta hai maine kuch jyada hi bol diya ICFAI ki side mein ...hain na bunny?

chal bunny saari purani baatein bhula di maine...... aaj se hum dost.
i m vivek joining hyderabad centre. we r batchmates so will b regularly in touch. this will help us during internships and placement season.

hey bunny here we r nt thinkning bout our placements....cuz we know that we(all 800) r given equal opportunity to prove ourselves...i think u ll also get a chance in gurgaon to do the same...
