Heya all....

We know its quite late in the day to start this thread.....and when we say "late", its not about this academic year....its about the 4 years of our existence...
Agreed that we cant go back on time, but be rest assured, henceforth we are going to keep you all updated on a regular basis to make up for the time we have lost.

Now again, a separate thread is being started for life @ FMS-MBA(MS) because the flagship MBA course and the MBA(MS) course operate from 2 different campuses. Hence, the daily activities here at the South Campus are a bit different from the ones that takes place in the North Campus.

We are just the 4th batch on campus and we must say that we love this place. Right from the South Campus which itself is a misfit with the hustle and bustle of Delhi, to our college building which has an age old charm attached to it, everything about the place has made us feel a sense of belonging to it.
This thread is being started right in the middle of our sem exams....But then this sort of "uncertainty' and "unpredictability" is what makes life out here so enjoyable...

Its said that all major inventions are an outcome of experiments. We are an experiment too and we have full faith in the institution of FMS and Delhi University that they will make this experiment a success(If its not one already!!!)

P.S: Keep a tab on this thread to get a detailed description of what this campus is all about and the activities that have taken place in the past few months

What a time to start the thread
Right in the midst of Sem Exams..with stage I (i.e. pre diwali break) of the exams being over..Have a break of 4 days before we face the next continuous set of papers

Many of the Hosteliers have taken max benefit of this gap and headed to their or their Guardian's places to enjoy the festivities...
& its getting chillier each passing day here in the lush green south campus making it all the more difficult to keep awake to prepare for the exams

@dddd : Hey sood.....great to hear from u after a long time...
Ya dude....summers are over...just waiting for the papers to end to get back to our extra curricular life!!!!
As for interaction with other courses, we do interact quite a bit with the guys from MBE....

Heya Maulin...I cant agree with u more dude...Its been cloudy since morning and its turning terribly cold now with the rains in the afternoon....
Just back from distributing sweets and gifts to the college staff....must say, the happiness and gratitude on their face made my day :)

Riddhi

Hey hriday....it might have been an easy test.
But for lesser mortals like me, the question still remains, "Yaar, I will pass na??"

Anyways, 4 conceptual papers down the drain. Now its time to unleash your writing skills with 4 back to back "funda" papers lined up in succession !!!

Point taken Koki....No padhai related talks here.....as it is, we just embarrass ourselves even more by talking about exams and studies :satisfie:

Anyways, Here is a line up of the various events lined up at FMS-MBA(MS) over the next one month:

1) Impetus - The HR Summit organized by "Persona", the HR society
2) Finanza - The Financial Services Summit organized by "Finesse", The Finance Society
3) Serveskriti - The flagship event of FMS-MBA(MS)

Keep a watch on this thread to get more updates about these events!!!

I bet...it was an experience to see top honchos from Google, Microsoft and Yahoo share the same stage and interact with the students...

Even MarkiTrend was a big success with heads of Nokia, Future Group, Lupin Pharma, Domino's Pizza, Maruti Udyog and a few other companies sharing their valuable experience with students from across B-Schools and giving us meaningful insights into the world of Corporate Marketing...

Would try and upload a few snaps of the events soon

yes Riddhi indeed. While a small bit of the IT gyaan was OHT for me, Markitrend was an eye opener. The practical hands on advise on what marketing actually was really an eye opener. Move over Kotler enter our own corporate gurus. I being a Persona member will surely update you soon about what we are up [email protected] Impetus...peace and rock on

Now that exams r over and the second sem beginning today it looks an entirely different world. Well let me tell u what we did just after the last paper was over:

4-30pm : I am liberated
7-15pm: The bus heads off for the disc
11-30pm: Enough of dancing for the day. Food's next
1-15 am: Back in heaven. Time to sleep. I have barely slept for past two weeks.
1-30am: Change of plans. I am in Badminton court
4-45am: I can barely stand on my feet. Now time to sleep.
5-00am: Change of plans again. "October Sky" is next in line
5-20am: I am sleeping with the movie playing in the background

Well well..
With the end of the Semester 1 exams and the absolutely rawking party thereafter; we are back to the classrooms to attend our Semester 2 classes, having a one day break :wow: in between..
Whereas some of us had to get up earlier and rush to attend the morning lecture, a few others are having a chhotu sa extended holiday at their homes ;)
some ppl did miss the badminton games that day :drinking:
Once again, excellent work by team Spaxx (as we call it) in organizing the much needed party after the summer placements and exams :thumbsup:

Hi guys...
I went thru the thread... However, I need some help... I am applying for MBA (MS) at FMS... and as you'll know we need to write a SOP... As you all seem to have students of this course, can you give me some gyan about the uniqueness about this course (which I could use in the SOP), as the post on FMS website is not helpful.... It would be great if you can give some info soon as I am struggling and the last date of submission is 30-Nov-07!!

Thanx... Munir
